Service Animals & Support Resources

University of Toronto Service Animals Guideline

The University has developed new guidelines on the welcoming of service animals on our campuses in order to reflect and clarify the law. They provide University-context specific guidance on how all members of the University community can welcome service animals. It also clarifies how community members wishing to be accompanied by service animals can do so.

Support Persons

A support person accompanies a person with a disability in order to help with communication, mobility, personal care or medical needs.

Support persons are welcomed at the University to accompany persons with disabilities in order for them to access the University services. Communication and service should be focused on the individual as opposed to the support person.

If you are holding an event where an admission fee is being charged indicate on the event promotional material or at the ticket desk if support persons will be charged admission. This allows for the support person and the person with a disability to be prepared.
