ROM Accessibility Strategy
The ROM has developed a Multi Year Accessibility Plan which outlines our commitment to removing barriers to participation for Museum visitors with disabilities. This Multi Year Plan includes a brief overview of our organization, a description of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 and our own accessibility planning process, a description of the framework we have in place in order to address issues of accessibility and subsequent goals for the future. The Multi Year Accessibility Plan is available in alternate formats upon request.
ROM Commitment to a more accessible Museum

The ROM is committed to meeting accessibility requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 and any future additions or modifications to the legislation.
