At St. Lawrence College (SLC) we work collaboratively with faculty, staff and students to provide access and support for students with disabilities and students in distress. While not all students with disabilities at SLC register with Counselling & AccessAbility Services (CAAS), it is through the stewardship of CAAS and participation of the broader college and local communities that SLC continues to be committed to providing a learning environment that is accessible for all students.

Our Brockville, Cornwall and Kingston campuses have full-time CAAS staff that support student with disabilities and faculty in a collaborative and encouraging manner. Students with temporary or permanent disabilities or functional limitations can access individually designed supports, personal counseling and accommodations to meet their academic and placement needs. SLC's goal is to address the attitudinal, informational, communication, technological,organizational, and physical barriers that can hinder the success of students with disabilities as they strive to achieve their educational, personal and career goals.

SLC embraces the legal and ethical rights to equal opportunity and freedom from discrimination for individuals with disabilities as noted under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1982), the Ontario Human Rights Code (1990) and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (2005), particularly as it applies to our students.
