Our Commitment to Accessibility​​

We are committed to building accessible learning and working environments that support the four ​core principles of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA):

  • Integration
  • Equality of Opportunity
  • Dignity
  • Independence
These principles guide Board Policy #407.0, Accessibility​​, and are aligned with the four Board priorities of the Multi-Year Strategic Plan and the Director's Action Plan​:

In creating safe, healthy and inclusive learning and working environments… 

We promote the meaningful integration of people with disabilities through inclusive practices and universal design.

In developing the knowledge, skills and attitudes to remove barriers in support of all learners...

We proactively identity, remove and prevent barriers to accessibility in order to create equal opportunities for full participation and inclusion.

MYSP Build Collaborative Relationships icon

Build Collaborative Relationships​ + Dig​​nity

In building trusting relationships based on respectful and responsive communication…

We actively engage people with disabilities in collaborative and meaningful ways that respect their dignity and self-worth.

In leading ethically by focusing on students and upholding our values...

We entrust people with decision-making autonomy and independence in order to build leadership capacity and accessibility.


Under the direction of the Minstry of Education, The HRCO is tasked with leading and championing the Board's commitment to accessibility and compliance with the provisions of the AODA, which includes accessibility awareness, education and training for the system.

Building towards accessible learning and working environments requires shared responsibilities and collaborative commitments from staff, students and the wider YRDSB community. Our accessibility goals are achieved through the ongoing work of the AODA Advisory Committee which operates under the direction of the HRCO.​

The work of the AODA Advisory Committee is guided by​ the Multi-Year Accessibility Plan and summarized at the end of each reporting period in the Annual Accessibility Plan.​​​​​​​​​
