Accessible Communication

Conestoga College is committed to ensuring that its programs, services, and facilities are accessible. Our journey to accessibility is guided by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). As a result of AODA legislation, all Ontario organizations are expected to "upon request provide or arrange for the provision of accessible formats and communication supports for persons with disabilities".

Typically accessible communication refers to either converting a document into an alternate format (such as braille) or formatting a document when it is being created so that can be more easily accessed by persons with disabilities.

The Accessibility Services department's Adaptive Technology Lab is your contact should you have a request to provide a document in an alternate format (such as braille or TTY).

Note: If you are an employee, and do not have Microsoft Office 2016 on your work computer, contact the IT Service Desk at 519-748-5220 x3444, to have it installed, or visit the IT Downloads page. Using Office 2016 will enable you to use all of the accessibility features in Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
