First approved: October 2013

Revised: May 2023

Reviewed: May 2023

The Ontario Human Rights Code requires examination candidates to be provided testing accommodations in accordance with the Code to the point of “undue hardship”. This policy outlines how College staff manages requests for testing accommodations for the Jurisprudence, Ethics and Professionalism Examination.


The College will apply its Guidelines for Testing Accommodation for Jurisprudence, Ethics and Professionalism exam candidates with a documented disability in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code to the point of “undue hardship”.


A candidate who seeks testing accommodation due to a disability must provide a written request no less than 45 days before the Examination according to the process outlined in the Guidelines.

College staff will review the application and supporting documentation, and may request additional information before deciding whether this policy can be applied and if reasonable testing accommodations can be provided. The College will provide the candidate with an acknowledgement of the agreement specifying the testing accommodations that will be provided.

The candidate will indicate their acceptance of these accommodations by returning to the College a signed and dated copy of this agreement at least three weeks prior to the exam date.

Where testing accommodations are to be provided to the candidate, College staff will notify the provider of the examination administration site of the accommodations to be provided for the specific candidate.
