To register with the Paul Menton Centre, you will need to book an intake appointment with a PMC Disabilities Coordinator. During the intake appointment, your Coordinator will review your documentation and discuss the accommodations and services that would best suit your needs.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, and in accordance with Carleton’s hybrid learning model for the 2021-2022 academic year, and guidelines from Ottawa Public Health, Ontario Public Health, and Health Canada, in-person appointments are available by-request. Please be aware that not all PMC Coordinators are available in-person, and that a virtual appointment may be recommended if order to avoid scheduling delays.

Book an Intake Appointment

Email us at pmc@carleton.ca or call us at 613-520-6608.

Note that emails should be sent from your Carleton email address (cmail).

In order to book you will need to provide:

  • First and Last name
  • Carleton student ID number
  • Carleton email address (also known as a CMAIL address)
  • The general nature of your disability so we can book you with the correct Coordinator (this does not need to be specific ex. Mental health, learning disability, ADHD, etc.)
  • A copy of your documentation
  • All of the dates and times you’d be available for an appointment. Please include multiple options as our appointments book-up quickly. Note that we do not book appointments between 12-1pm.
  • A phone number to reach you at for the appointment

Our front desk staff will be able to answer any questions you have at the time of booking, and will also let you know which of our Coordinators you will be meeting with.

Once your appointment is booked, you will receive a confirmation email to your CMAIL address providing your appointment details as well as a consent form and student questionnaire to complete and email back to us prior to the appointment.

Create a Ventus Account

Ventus is a new one-stop academic accommodation management tool to help you manage and keep track of your accommodations in your courses throughout the term.

You can create a Ventus account by following the instructions outlined on the Ventus Student Portal Login page of the Ventus Help website.

Please note that creating a Ventus account does not start the intake process. Please call (613-520-6608) or email (pmc@carleton.ca) us to book your intake appointment. 

The Ventus Student Portal allows students to:

  • Submit documentation
  • Confirm exam participation
  • Select exam accommodations
  • Access letters and accommodation information

Upload your disability documentation in Ventus

Your disability documentation can be uploaded directly to Ventus where your PMC Coordinator will be able to review the information.

The Ventus portal is secure; please remove password protection on documents to ensure coordinators are able to access/review it prior to the intake without delay.

Attend Your Intake Appointment

You will be provided with instructions and/or directions for how to join or get to your appointment, as booked wither virtually or in-person, when you make your appointment.

A member of the PMC Team will be happy to contact you to provide information about the PMC, options that may be available, and what next-steps will look like.

Documentation Forms

The Paul Menton Centre (PMC) has developed specific documentation forms for various types of disabilities.

PMC Orientation

This year, the Paul Menton Centre is running a new type of orientation event, PMC Ravens: Launch to Campus. We’ll be running multiple iterations of the live and interactive event and encourage all PMC students to attend whether the fall of 2022 will be your first time on campus, or your first time in a while coming back.

Participants will have the chance to (virtually) meet peers, PMC Staff, become acquainted with the accommodation process and have the opportunity to choose from a number of workshops designed to help foster your independence and self-advocacy skills to facilitate a smooth transition to campus.

Registration is free but required to save your space!
