Accessibility Planning

Our board is committed to providing students, staff and members of the community with an accessible environment for teaching and learning in all of our schools and board offices.

That is why we have developed a multi-year Accessibility Plan, in accordance with the Integration Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR) under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), 2005.

The Plan describes the measures that our board will implement over the six-year period from 2019-2025 to identify, remove and prevent barriers for all people who work, learn and participate in our community.

The objectives of the plan are to:

  • Describe the process by which the Board will identify, remove and prevent barriers;

  • Review recent efforts of the Board to remove and prevent barriers;

  • Describe the measures the Board’s plans to take in the period 2019-2025 to identify, remove and prevent barriers;

  • Makes a commitment to provide an annual status report on the board’s implementation of the Multi-year Accessibility Plan;

  • Makes a commitment to review and update the Multi-year Accessibility Plan annually;

  • Describes how the board will make this Multi-year Accessibility Plan available to the public.

We encourage you to review the 2019-2025 SMCDSB Accessibility Plan.

We are also committed to supporting the use of assistive devices and believe that all people should have the same opportunities to access our services, regardless of location.

For this purpose we have created a Feedback Form so you can provide us with information to guide the Board's Accessibility Planning Committee.
