An update on the sudden and arbitrary cancellation of the Accessible Media Production graduate certificate program here in Ontario. It was a one-of-a-kind program here in Canada and we were just getting ready to accept international students this year (the graduate certificate was completely online).

Looks like there is no hope for reinstating this career path graduate certificate.

Sad and devastating for those of us with disabilities and those dedicated to inclusion, diversity and equity.

Cheers, Karen
