Accessing Disability Services

Follow these steps to access our services:

Step One: Collect Your Documentation

Documentation is confirmation of a permanent or temporary disability from a recognized medical professional. It guides Student Accessibility Services’ staff in the selection of accommodations to meet your specific needs. All documentation is kept confidential in the office of Student Accessibility Services.

To find out what type of documentation to submit, select a link below.

Drop off, mail or fax your documentation to:

Student Accessibility Services
Confederation College
P.O. Box 398
1450 Nakina Drive
Thunder Bay, ON P7C 4W1
Fax: (807) 473-3744

Step Two: Make an Appointment With Student Accessibility Services

Meet with one of our staff. This is your opportunity to ask questions and get further clarification on the services and accommodations we provide. Remember: If you have not forwarded your documentation to Student Accessibility Services, please bring it with you to this appointment.

Call (807) 475-6618 or email sas@confederationc.on.ca to make an appointment.

Step Three: Assist in Developing your Accommodation Plan (AP)

Once your timetable is established, meet with one of our staff again to develop your AP. This formal document outlines the accommodations you are entitled to access and not your disability. Once you sign the AP, a copy is distributed to each faculty member listed on your timetable.

During this appointment, you may be referred to other members of our team such as a Learning Strategist/Assistive Technologist or the Accommodation Services Facilitator.
