Essential Accessibility


Assistive technology browser and mobile application

The university is dedicated to providing an inclusive and accessible website for all visitors. As part of this commitment, we have partnered with eSSENTIAL ACCESSIBILITY to offer a technology that is a suite of keyboard, mouse and touch replacement solutions that will enhance the website experience for people with physical disabilities. 


We need to be responsive and relevant and assume our role in building an inclusive and expansive society. We need to use technology to become even more accessible and inclusive.

Dr. Steven Murphy, President and Vice-Chancellor
