OCSA - IDeA Student Competition


The Council of Ontario Universities has officially launched its Innovative Designs for Accessibility (IDeA) Undergraduate Student Competition. Inspired by the goal of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) to make Ontario the most accessible province by 2025, the IDeA competition asks for students to submit innovative, cost-effective, and practical proposals for solutions to accessibility barriers in the community.

Undergraduate students at Ontario universities can work in teams or individually, and are urged to join forces with partners in the industry, the government, and the community to distinguish a concern related to accessibility, develop an action plan to tackle this concern and to employ their solution. Input and guidance from industry and academic experts is encouraged.

You could win up to $2,000 with your IDeA!

Submissions must be sent in by May 31st, 2018 at 11:59 PM.
