triOS College is committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of persons with disabilities and is committed to working to eliminate or reduce barriers to be able to facilitate the accommodation of persons with disabilities.

We are committed to meeting our obligations under the Ontario Human Rights Code. www.ohrc.on.ca

triOS College recognizes its responsibility for accommodating the disability-related needs of students and is committed to providing an equal and inclusive environment. A determination as to whether a proposed accommodation would cause undue hardship within the meaning of the Code will vary depending on the circumstances of each accommodation request and will be considered on a caseby-case basis. This determination will take into account a number of variable factors including, but not limited to:

  • the cost of the proposed accommodation;
  • the likely impact of the proposed accommodation on triOS College’s financial position and budgets;
  • the availability to triOS College of grants, subsidies, tax deductions, government benefits and other outside sources of funding, including funds that may be available to the student only, through government programs or otherwise, that (i) are linked to the student’s disability, (ii) would assist triOS College in defraying the costs of accommodation, and (iii) triOS is entitled to use for this purpose, and;
  • whether the nature or delivery of education programs and services for all students would be substantially and permanently altered.

triOS College will assist in providing accommodation to deaf or hearing impaired students that may include paying all or some of the cost of sign language interpretation, where that form of accommodation may be needed by a particular individual and will not cause undue hardship. triOS College agrees with the Ontario Human Rights Commission that providing sign language interpretation to deaf or hearing impaired students may not be the most appropriate form of accommodation in all circumstances. In a particular case, triOS College will assess the request for accommodation to consider if it will cause undue financial hardship. triOS College will explore the next best accommodation solution to provide the most appropriate accommodation that would not cause undue hardship.

Persons with Disabilities – College Application Procedure

triOS College supports the concept of accommodating Qualified Adults with Disabilities to the best of our abilities within the context of the Ontario Human Rights Code.

Any individual who presents themselves as an individual requiring accommodation will be warmly greeted and extended not only the same service provided to non-disabled individuals, but triOS will pay for any extra nominal costs such as sign language interpreters for initial interviews and subsequent meetings.

Applicants for Admission will be given the same testing and interview processes; however these may be modified to accommodate individual needs. These accommodations will be on a case by case basis and may include an interpreter, extra time, Seeing Eye dog, etc. Individuals would still be required to pass the same admission competency tests, and any special entrance requirements that each program may have (e.g. fitness, police check and health immunizations checks). Individuals must also be able to pay for their tuition, materials and other fees.

After an applicant has passed all the required entry processes and has completed their application for enrollment, complete with the registration fee, triOS will work with the individual to determine how to assist with their accommodation. A student who requires accommodations to complete their program must request from their Education Consultant a “Student Request for Disability Accommodations” form. This form must be completed and returned, together with supporting documentation, to the Campus Director. The Campus Director will work with the applicant to create a feasible plan to ensure their success. During the meeting with the Campus Director, the procedure will be as follows.
The Applicant will:

  • Explain their specific accommodation to determine the nature of their disability.
  • Document their educational history to assist triOS with learning of their past accommodation issues and solutions.
  • Provide reference to previous educators so that triOS can verify the history and explore options.
  • Provide a written list of all the alternative accommodation options that exists to deal with their particular disability, ranking the list in their preferred order of preference.
  • Will provide estimated costs for each alternative along with back-up documentation.
  • Explore other alternatives that may not have been presented.

Accommodation plans will be shared with instructors.
