Capilano University is developing an Accessibility Plan detailing its strategies to identify, remove and prevent barriers.

Our vision

Capilano University envisions establishing the most inclusive and accessible experience for our community in alignment with the Accessible BC Act.

This provincial legislation emboldens us to address accessibility barriers through our commitment to seeking out that knowledge from collective input.

Successful results are the outcome of shared responsibility and commitment on the part of our senior administrators, faculty, support staff and students.

It is by the involvement of everyone that we can realize the identification, removal and prevention of barriers to accessibility. The principle of “Nothing About Us, Without Us” underscores our approach, prioritizing the voices of those with disabilities first and foremost in guiding our work.

Concurrently, our journey of reconciliation offers “Indigenous Ways of Knowing” serving as a secondary avenue through which to understand what needs to be done to attain equity, diversity and inclusion.

We welcome feedback from all members of our community in the coming months. Your feedback is invaluable to move us forward in the achievement of a barrier-free CapU and to transform that knowledge into a culture that builds accessibility into everything that we do.

Together we embark on this collective effort to establish our first Accessible CapU Committee and build our first Accessible CapU Plan.

The plan's initial form will progressively develop and evolve over time. A collaborative engagement process will remain ongoing, fostering continuous dialogue and input.

The regulations to address barriers require the inclusion of these guiding principles as component parts of the plan.

  • Diversity;
  • Collaboration;
