The Council of Ontario Universities (COU), in partnership with the Government of Ontario, is pleased to present the fourth annual Innovative Designs for Accessibility (IDeA) student competition.

This contest seeks innovative, cost-effective and practical solutions to accessibility-related barriers in the community.

The COU challenge Ontario’s university undergraduate students to use their creativity, working individually or in teams with industry, government and community partners, including members of the disability community, to identify an accessibility-related issue, develop a plan to address the issue, and create an innovative and unique solution to it.

IDeA is inspired by the goal of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) to make Ontario the most accessible province by 2025.
