Accommodations

Accommodations

The University of Victoria has a legal duty to provide an accommodation where it is necessary to allow you to conduct your work. This duty is laid out in the BC Human Rights Code.

Accommodation plans are arranged through UVic’s Human Resources Office. You have a right to UVICFA representation at any stage in this process and we strongly encourage you to consult with us before commencing negotiations for an appropriate and reasonable accommodation plan.

Finding what is reasonable for both you and the University can be complex and challenging. It is important to note that the cost of an accommodation is not generally a test of whether it will be approved.

Much more information is available in our Disability FAQs. You can also refer to Section 55 of the Collective Agreement or consult our Membership Services Office.
