HAT Forum, OISE, 252 Bloor Street W
Saturday, March 17, 2012, 11:00am - 1pm.
Topic: Reasonable Accommodation
Facilitator: Moses Klein
The issue of reasonable accommodation comes up whenever special
arrangements or exceptions to existing policy have to be made to
accommodate people with disabilities or with religious requirements.
(For example, 20 years ago a decision by the RCMP to allow Sikh mounties
to wear turbans with their uniform became an iconic example of Canadian
multiculturalism.) When are such accommodations reasonable or
unreasonable? Are there religious strictures that ought never be
accommodated? If accommodations require extra expenses, is there some
line beyond which you consider the expense unreasonable?
