Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Training Modules

We will ensure that all of our employees are trained and familiar with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), the Integrated Accessibility Standards and how the Ontario Human Rights Code (OHRC) works with the AODA. We endeavor to communicate with our community by considering the diverse abilities of all community members.

All faculty and instructors (including full-time and limited-term faculty members, academic associates, sessional instructors, teaching assistants, research assistants and invigilators) must complete the Ontario Tech Accessible Instruction Module for Educators (if you haven’t done so within the last six months). The module takes approximately 40 minutes.

Managers must reinforce this message and ensure all volunteers, university works students, incoming co-op and placement students, contract employees and 3rd party service providers complete the mandatory training as soon as reasonably practicable after their start date.

Troubleshooting

  • How to check if you have completed each AODA module in CATALOG

    Sign in through Ontario Tech AODA Training Modules in CATALOG. Access the “Grades” section of the course and Review each of the required modules. Please review which modules you are required to complete based on your role at Ontario Tech. If you are an instructor you are also required to complete the Accessible Educators training, which is connected to your MyCampus account. 

    If your required modules have a score of less than 100% they are incomplete, you must return to the Home page and complete them. 

  • How to check if you have completed the entire AODA Training in CATALOG

    Upon the completion of all modules required based on your role at the university, you will then receive a completion gradeThis completion grade is done manually, and therefore may take some time to appear within your Grades.

    Please be patient. 

  • Recommended Browser

    The recommended browser for the AODA Training Modules is Chrome, please ensure that you have the most recent version. 

  • The “Complete Course” button has not shown up

    Please ensure that you have completed all the knowledge check questions, this includes opening all drop down menus and answering the questions present in each module. The complete course button will not appear unless you have completed all the questions. 

  • The module froze and I cannot resume

    Sometimes when you leave your module idle it will pause. However, instead of pressing “Resume” for each of the modules you should press “Restart” as this will refresh the module and ensure you are able to complete it. 

  • Error message “yul.scorm”

    Please refresh the browser and restart the module
