Centre for Workplace Accessibility

The Centre for Workplace Accessibility (CWA) is a central hub for resources, tools, and programs that help remove barriers for faculty and staff with disabilities or ongoing medical conditions.

We can help provide information about disability inquiries, workplace accommodations, and the Workplace Accommodation Fund.

Process and approach

To request a meeting with a Workplace Accessibility Specialist, call or email us. To request funding, fill out the Workplace Accommodation Fund form. We will contact you in 1 business day to set up our first conversation. 

Our goal is to provide safe, person-centered support for disabled faculty and staff members. During our initial conversation, we will discuss your goals and provide the information and resources that might be helpful. We’ll take your lead in planning the next steps. Our conversation is confidential and we’ll only involve others in the process with your consent.
