Welcome to SBA

Students for Barrier Free Access (SBA) at the University of Toronto is a student-led, volunteer-driven, non-profit which advocates for intersectional access, equity and inclusion. We advocate for disability justice and all of our programming and advocacy is shaped through this framework. 

SBA holds free, skill-building workshops for members that build our community’s expertise, while also giving members the ability to learn skills transferable to many workplace settings. At this time, SBA is working to support members virtually, with movie nights, workshops, and a food-sharing program. On campus, we run a community drop-in center where members can enjoy a respectful, social, political and creative space.
