The Ontario Human Rights Commission’s (OHRC) report, Inquiry report on systemic barriers to academic accommodation for post-secondary students with mental health disabilities, evaluates six measures to help reduce the barriers student with mental health related disabilities experience when trying to access accommodations. The OHRC requested Ontario public colleges and universities implement these six measures: 1) Eliminate mandatory disclosure of diagnosis; 2) Provide interim accommodations; 3) Accommodate temporary mental health disabilities; 4) Consider retroactive accommodations where appropriate; 5) Arrange for accommodation through centralized process; and 6) Implement clear communications and training. PSIs agreed to implement the measures and are in varying states of implementation.
