Together the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences and Brock University are committed to improving the accessibility of Congress for delegates with disabilities.
If you identify as a person with a disability and require accommodations (such as alternative formats for written materials, oral interpretation, assistance wheeling long distances, access to quiet spaces etc.), you are encouraged to let organizers know well in advance of Congress.
When registering online, please indicate that you require accessible accommodations and then fill out the Accessibility Needs and Information questionnaire.
For presenters, please see the document Accessible Presentations for tips on improving the accessibility of your public talks.
Accessibility on campus
The Federation works with all official Congress hotels and on campus accommodations to ensure equal access for all delegates. We survey all properties with the specifications provided under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, including the exterior of the building, lobby, rooms, bathrooms and amenities.
For more information regarding the accessibility of any of the 2014 Congress official hotels please contact Whitney Stalkie via email or at 613-238-6112, ext. 315.
