Accessibility

The University or Regina and the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences are committed to providing the most inclusive and barrier-free Congress experience possible for attendees with disabilities and accessibility needs. Below you will find pertinent information for planning an accessible trip to Congress 2018. 

Additional information on general services can be found on the Local amenities page. Note that this website acts as the accessible format for all Congress 2018 information, including that which is found in the Congress Essentials guide handed out onsite.

If you missed submitting the form during registration, contact congress@ideas-idees.ca.

Accessible accommodations

The Federation works with all official Congress hotels and on-campus accommodations to ensure equal access for all attendees. We survey each property based on the standards and specifications provided under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, including the exterior of the building, lobby, rooms, bathrooms and amenities.

Should you have questions regarding the accessibility level of one of the official Congress 2018 hotels, each property listed on the Accommodations page includes a contact person specifically for accessibility queries.
