AODA Compliance

The Ryerson Students Union is committed to creating equitable and inclusive environments free from all forms of discrimination.

We recognize that our members with disabilities have a diverse range of experiences both on and off campus, and often share the experience of disempowerment and ableism based on systemic barriers, negative attitudes and exclusion by society.

The RSU is dedicated to doing its part in educating the campus community, and creating spaces that are fair, equitable and accessible for all members.
