Make Malvern C.I. Accessible!

This petition had 1,184 supporters

Help us get an elevator in our school! Malvern Collegiate Institute is a high school located in Ward 16 of the Toronto District School Board (TDSB). Our school is not accessible to students with a physical disability or to those who use mobility devices because it is three stories and offers no ramps, stair lifts, or elevators. This means that many teachers, guest speakers, parents, and other visitors to the school who have certain disabilities are unable to enter the school and participate in school events either easily or at all. This also means that future students with disabilities must be differed to other schools because our school is not accessible.

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act was created with the purpose of developing and enforcing accessibility standards to create an accessible Ontario by January 1 2025. With respect to this act, we are seeking to implement an elevator in our school to make the facility more accessible to people with physical disabilities or users of mobility devices. The Fraser Institute ranks schools across Ontario, and Malvern Collegiate Institute has received a ranking in the top thirty. We believe that all students should have the right to attend a good school and we want to see Malvern become a place that is welcoming and accommodating of all students. Help us achieve this goal.
