Implementation of the Customer Service Standard, Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA)

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) was passed by the Ontario Government, Ministry of Community, and Social Services, with the goal of establishing a “fully accessible” Ontario by 2025. The Customer Service Standard is the first of five Standards to become law. All Ontario Universities must comply with the Customer Service Standard by January 1, 2010.

The Department of English is committed to providing an accessible, equitable, and inclusive learning environment. For accessibility needs, please contact our English Department offices (above), or U of T Accessibility Services.

A requirement of the Customer Service Standard is to provide information to all employees regarding the delivery of service. For the University the legislation applies to everyone who interacts with a student, future student, or member of the public. For more information, please contact AODA.

Personal items, such as articles of clothing, keys, umbrellas, waterbottles, etc., that are left in the Department of English offices or Department of English classrooms in the Jackman Humanities Building, will be held in the Department offices for 3 months, and may be claimed from room JHB 613. After that time, lost items may be claimed from the U of T Lost and Found through Facilities and Services.
