Inclusive Meetings and Conferences

The Council for Ontario Universities has created a comprehensive guide to planning inclusive conferences and events. This guide provides conference planners and organizers with advice and practical tips on how to ensure all participants, regardless of their abilities, get the most out of the event you are planning. 

The guide provides information on:

  • Selecting a venue for the event
  • Planning, organizing and conducting accessible and inclusive events
  • Products and services that can maximize participation
  • Website and Accessible Communications

The guide also provides:

  • An accessibility checklist for conferenceplanners
  • Downloadable Universal Symbols of Accessibility 
  • A detailed resource section providing links to many areas of event planning

A copy of A Planning Guide for Accessible Conferences can be found on the University of Ottawa website under the Planning Accessible Events tab here
