RyeACCESS operates out of SCC202 in the Ryerson Student Centre at 55 Gould Street. Stop by our office to access a safer space. We also operate as a Collective, meaning that you can join our space and help direct our organisational mandate, find a social and activist support network and decompress.
The Reclaiming Our Bodies & Minds Conference was initially hosted at Ryerson University in 2012. In 2014, student groups and campus/community activists from Ryerson University, York University, University of Toronto and George Brown College came together to imagine an inter-campus conference that brought together disability community activists, service providers, academics, and everybody in between. This is the fourth year of the Reclaiming Our Bodies & Minds Inter-University Conference.
Get involved in volunteering for small and large roles with the conference, submit a workshop proposal or just attend the conference in March! There are tons of opportunities.

Seminars are hosted in the Ryerson Student Centre and only cost $30 plus Eventbrite processing fees. Seminars are taught by Deaf instructors from the Canadian Hearing Society. Seminars are not accredited with Ryerson University or the Canadian Hearing Society and are purely introduction for students to determine if they are interested in more formal study.
