Community members express concerns over suspension of Mohawk’s Accessible Media Production Program

Community members are expressing concerns after Mohawk College announced plans to pause its Accessible Media Production Program due to low enrolment. The eight-month program is offered online and teaches students about creating accessible content, disability legislation, and inclusive writing, and is reportedly the only program of its kind in Canada. While the program has reportedly struggled with enrolment from the beginning, critics are concerned that the program has not been promoted well enough and that the suspension will impact the accessibility industry and persons with disabilities. Some are also concerned that there has been a lack of consultation and that the micro-credentials that the college plans to replace the program with will not make up for the loss of the program.
