Ryerson falls behind on accessibility

Lara Wong is a first-year student at Ryerson. She relies on a walker to get around campus. She lives in a Pitman Hall room renovated for her needs, including a roll-in shower.

Wong has carefully planned her route to classes based on accessibility and spent much of her first week on campus mapping it out with her support worker.
