I have a disability. How do I apply for an accommodation under the Ontario Human Rights Code?
Educational Accommodation under Ontario Human Rights Code
This process applies only if you are currently registered as a salesperson or broker with RECO.
RECO is committed to accommodating persons with disabilities who require additional time to complete their educational requirements.
If you are currently completing your pre-registration phase, please contact Humber College.
Considerations apply only if you have a disability as defined under Section 10(1) of the Ontario Human Rights Code that has affected your ability to complete your course requirements.
