Ottawa's Carleton University and Algonquin College both provid 24-hour attendant care to disabled students in their residence, allowing severely disabled students to live independent lives in residence. However, this program was closed during COVID-19 and when Carleton's residence reopened this fall, these students were told to stay home despite the university's vaccination mandate. TVO.org assistant editor Sarah Trick tells us how this could have serious consequences not only for their education, but for their prospects of an independent adult life.
