Support students at the University of Toronto

December 14th, 2017

We condemn the University of Toronto’s “University-Mandated Leave of Absence Policy,” which removes the autonomy of students with disabilities and mad-identifying students. We support Students for Barrier Free Access U of T in their statement and subsequent petition and urge you to do the same.

Students deserve the right to education free of ableism, and the University of Winnipeg Student’s Association is in solidarity with students at the University of Toronto.
