Developing Dalhousie's Accessibility Plan


The Dalhousie University Accessibility Committee brings together stakeholders from across the university to develop an institutional approach to enable Dalhousie to meet its requirements under the Nova Scotia Accessibility Act, 2017, c.2, s.1

The committee will consult, learn, develop, and finalize a Dalhousie University Accessibility Plan that is multi-dimensional, recognizing the various components of accessibility (see six focus areas below).
