Number of Students with Disabilities

“There are not many students with disabilities who attend [our college].”
- Activity Programmer
College, Atlantic Canada

The number of students with disabilities on your campus can vary greatly from one school to another. The table below outlines the average number of students with disabilities, the average number of total students, and the percentage of students with disabilities represented on campuses in each province based on research conducted by the Adaptech Research Network in Montreal.

It is important to note that these statistics are for students who are registered to receive disability-related accommodations and services from their post-secondary institutions. Many students choose not to self-identify as having a disability for any number of reasons. Most campuses have a population of students with visible and invisible disabilities between 5 and 10 percent. Keep in mind the representation of students with disabilities is generally affected by the level of access and accommodations provided on campus.
