Accessibility at Carleton

Carleton University has an extensive and dynamic history of making its campus and courses increasingly accessible to students with disabilities and is committed to being the most accessible campus in Canada, as underscored in our Strategic Integrated Plan (SIP) and Strategic Mandate Agreement (SMA).

To lead Carleton’s commitment toward a fully accessible and inclusive campus, the SIP recommended creation of a Coordinated Accessibility Strategy. The seven broad themes in the strategy also chart the university’s past and present efforts, based on a long-standing history of overcoming challenges to inclusion and accessibility.

A new website has been created, mapping out in one place all of Carleton’s accessibility initiatives according to the seven broad themes identified in the Coordinated Accessibility Strategy.  Visit the Accessibility at Carleton website for an overview of the many accessibility related initiatives, services, and resources on our campus.

At Carleton University, we strive to be a leader in creating an inclusive, accessible community. As part of this commitment, we are proud to share an updated Commitment to Accessibility Statement with our community. Review the new accessibility statement at Carleton’s Accessibility website.

Carleton University recognizes the importance of ensuring accessible goods and services are readily available to our community. We are committed to supporting the creation of environments that remove barriers to individuals with disabilities by ensuring accessibility is considered for all purchases. Through our accessible procurement plan, developed in coordination with on-campus experts, we remain aligned with the needs of the University, as well as the requirements set out by the provincial government. Review Carleton’s Accessible Procurement Resources page for more information.
