Hot Docs values inclusivity and accessibility for all guests, staff and volunteers.

Hot Docs Multi-Year Accessibility Plan
In accordance with our obligations under the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (O. Reg. 191/11, s. 4 (1)), Hot Docs has prepared a multi-year accessibility plan, which sets out the deliverables and activities that we will undertake over the next five years to identify, prevent and remove barriers to accessibility.
