Accessibility in the Workplace

Toronto Metropolitan University is committed to principles of equity and diversity in the workplace. Employment equity is a principle at the core of the university’s overall mandate as a community leader and an institution of higher learning. The university is committed to promoting employment equity, ensuring equal opportunity and equitable representation in employment.

Mandatory accessibility training for employees

All employees of Toronto Metropolitan University, including faculty, instructors, staff, volunteers, contractors, and others, are required by law to complete accessibility training within two weeks of the start of work.

Accessibility at the start and shared responsibility are some of our foundational principles and values. Ensuring all faculty and staff receive training is critical to ensure the ongoing development of an accessible and inclusive environment at the university.

Accommodation for employees with disabilities

While our goal is to provide an accessible and inclusive workplace by eliminating barriers in all our employment policies, procedures, and practices; individual accommodations may be required in order for employment goals to be fully realized.

Whether you require an accommodation as an employee with a disability, an employee with a newly acquired or temporary disability, or are returning to work following illness or injury, we want to ensure you have the support that you need.

Evacuation plans for employees requiring assistance

Employees with disabilities and their leaders should work together to identify any individualized needs related to emergency information and procedures. Learn about your role in implementing individualized accommodation plans for emergencies.
