Multi-Year Accessibility Plan

I. Statement of Commitment

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) was established in 2005. The goal of the act is to make workplaces and communities more accessible for people with a wide range of disabilities.

 

This accessibility plan presents ILAC’s commitment to meeting its obligations under the AODA. Inherent in this commitment is the understanding that improving access to learning and employment spaces to students, employees, and members of our community involves institution-wide awareness and participation, including the participation of persons with disabilities in the ongoing accessibility planning and review process. Through this collaborative approach, the institution can achieve and sustain a reasonable standard of service to all members of the school community who have disabilities.

II. Establishment of Accessibility Policies and Plans

Since 2014, ILAC has:

 

    • Identified facilities, regulations, policies, programs, practices, and services that cause or may cause barriers to people with disabilities;
    • Updated corporate and customer service accessibility policies;
    • Established a multi-year accessibility plan that can be shared in accessible formats upon request.

A. On-Campus Accessibility

ILAC facilitates equal access for eligible students, employees, and members of our community by coordinating reasonable accommodations and support services. Accommodation plans and services are determined based on documentation provided and specific program or employment requirements. Emphasis is placed on all members of the school community having ability and independence to realize their academic and professional potential and personal success.

 

For more information on accessibility and accommodation, please contact Itai Shenker, VP of Operations itai@ilac.com.

B. Digital Accessibility

ILAC is committed to making its websites accessible in order to enhance usability for everyone and improve the user experience for people with disabilities. Upon request, ILAC will create digital content in an accessible format and provide additional support in person, over the phone or via Zoom.

 

For questions and feedback about the accessibility of content on the website, including alternate-format requests, please contact Isabella Vivares, Head of Marketing and Design Isabella.V@ilac.com.

III. Training

ILAC is committed to providing training in the requirements of Ontario’s accessibility laws and the Ontario Human Rights Code as it applies to people with disabilities.

IV. Employment Standards

ILAC is committed to fair and accessible employment practices. ILAC is an equal opportunity employer, and this is reflected in the policies and procedures for hiring faculty and administrative and support staff.
