Strengthening the Culture of Accessibility

A new video titled “By Any Measure” has been developed by The Ontario Student Trustees’ Association/ l’Association des eleves conseillers et conseilleres de l’Ontario (OSTA-AECO).

This video features successful students and staff-led initiatives to inspire accessible and inclusive school communities in the Province of Ontario. The video was a student-led project in partnership with the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA).

The video specifically addresses the topic of attitudes as one of the key barriers to including people with disabilities in society. David Onley, Special Advisor to Ontario’s Minister Responsible for Accessibility said that “the best way to change the future is to start with our young people, and this video is a great way to begin the conversation that needs to happen in our classrooms and beyond. Making accessibility part of the culture in our schools today is an important step towards ensuring all Ontarians can reach their full potential.”

By Any Measure” is available in accessible video formats on the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association website here and here. You can read the news article about this video here.
