Accessibility in Brandon School Division

The Accessibility for Manitobans Act (AMA) became law in December 2013, and provides a process to remove barriers for people with disabilities and includes those who can identify, remove, and prevent barriers to accessibility.

Under this legislation, the Manitoba government developed five mandatory Accessibility Standards: 

Removing barriers to accessibility will give Manitobans of all abilities the opportunity to:

  • participate fully in everyday life; and
  • access and benefit from a system, service, product or environment.

Brandon School Division (BSD) is a diverse community of learners with a complex set of needs. With 26 facilities, 9,000+ students and more than 1,500 staff members, BSD has developed a network of resources and expertise to meet the educational and operational needs of students and staff in an agile fashion.
