In 2013, the Province of Manitoba announced the Accessibilities for Manitobans Act which requires organizations to develop and implement plans to enhance accessibility in five areas: Customer Service, Employment, Information and Communications, Built Environment and Transportation.

Red River College is currently developing our Accessibility Plan, and we would like your feedback to help build the plan. You can find more information about this initiative here.

You can share your feedback by completing a short survey.  Click here to let us know what you think!. The feedback is anonymous and it takes about 5 minutes to share your thoughts.

QUICK FACTS:

  • Persons with disabilities have long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments which, in interaction with various barriers, may hinder their participation on an equal basis with others.
  • A person can have a disability that is visible, non-visible, permanent or one that occurs only at certain times. You can’t always tell when someone has a disability. For a variety of reasons, an individual may not identify as having a disability, but face the very same barriers.
