U of T offers an optional and voluntary registration process for service animals.
Registering your service animal with the University minimizes the need to produce health documentation regarding your service animal and promotes seamless integration into campus life.
U of T students with service animals
Individuals who register their service animal with U of T will receive an easily-identifiable TCard sticker, which will notify others that their animal qualifies as a service animal under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
At this time, all appointments are being provided via phone or video only. The TCard sticker will be mailed to you via Canada Post.
Booking & Documentation
- Complete the Service Animal Registration Form (PDF).
- Obtain supporting documentation completed by an Ontario regulated health professional (see page 1-2 of the form for full details).
Note: We will consider documentation completed by an out-of-province regulated health professional on a case-per-case basis for exceptional circumstances.
- Contact Accessibility Services reception via firstname.lastname@example.org to request a secured link to upload your completed registration form and documentation, and book an appointment with the intake coordinator.
- Obtain your TCard sticker and affix it to your TCard.
Registration of a service animal only does not mean that you are registered with Accessibility Services or that you will receive academic accommodations. Find information on how to register for academic accommodations.
If you are a student who is employed by the University (e.g. a teaching assistant), register your service animal via Health and Well-being Programs & Services.
