The Accessible B.C. Act will support the development of new accessibility standards – in areas like employment, the built environment, and customer service – by identifying, removing and preventing barriers.
The Accessible British Columbia Act marks the next step in building an inclusive province that works for all of us. It will support the development of accessibility standards to ensure that all British Columbians can fully and equally participate in their communities. This includes, but is not limited to, employment, the delivery of services, transportation, the built environment, information and communications, education, procurement and health. Guided by the principle of “nothing about us without us”, work will also be aligned with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
