NSCC Accessibility Advisory Committee

Our Accessibility Advisory Committee (AAC) plays a pivotal role in helping NSCC become more accessible and inclusive while improving the educational environment for people with disabilities.

The AAC aligns with the vision, mission, values and strategic priorities of NSCC. Members, who serve for a term of 2-3 years, commit to:

  • Advising on the preparation, implementation and effectiveness of NSCC’s accessibility plan in accordance with Nova Scotia’s Accessibility Act.
  • Identifying and advising on the accessibility of existing and proposed NSCC policies, programs, practices and services, and supporting consultation with stakeholders on accessibility issues across our organization.
  • Reviewing relevant information and requests from staff, students and other stakeholders to inform accessibility planning.
  • Monitoring compliance with government accessibility directives and regulations.
