The Court of Appeal for Ontario is committed to ensuring that it is accessible to persons with disabilities. The Court is served by a designated accessibility coordinator who can respond to disability-related accommodation requests and provide information about accessibility to services at Osgoode Hall. The Court’s Accessibility Coordinator can be contacted at 416-326-1029 or coa.registrar [at] ontario [dot] ca .
If you have a disability-related accommodation request relating to your ability to participate in a court proceeding or your ability to comply with a court rule or practice direction, the request may need to be reviewed by a judge for approval. The Court’s Accessibility Coordinator can provide information about how to make a request to a judge.
Please provide as much advance notice as possible for accessibility requests. It may not be possible to provide an accommodation or support unless the Court receives enough advance notice. If it is not possible to provide the requested disability-related accommodation or support, Court staff will work with you to explore different alternatives.
