Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR)

In 2011, the AODA Integrated Accessibility Standards became law, enacting standards in the areas of Employment, Information and Communication, and Transportation.

  1. Employment: requirements for businesses and organizations make accessibility a regular part of finding, hiring and supporting employees with disabilities. The Accessibility Hub has information regarding employment accessibility for faculty and staff of the university;
  2. Information and Communication: regulates how organizations will be required to provide, create, and receive information and communications that are accessible to persons with disabilities. There are several sections of Information and Communications Standards of the IASR that are relevant to Queen's University community. The Accessibility Hub has many "How-to" guides available to ensure teaching methods, documents, and communications are accessible and comply with AODA regulations;
  3. Transportation: regulations that apply to modes of transportation under the jurisdiction of municipal and provincial governments. However, if/when Queen's provides transportation services, it is required to provide accessible vehicles or equivalent services upon request.
