Accessibility

The government of B.C. is committed to decreasing barriers and increasing accessibility for people with disabilities in B.C.  Accessibility 2024 lays the roadmap for making B.C. the most progressive province in Canada for people with disabilities by 2024.

What is Accessibility?

Accessibility is about providing people of all abilities with the opportunity to live full, inclusive lives.

Accessibility is about challenging our attitudes and beliefs about disabilities, and recognizing the value and contributions that people with disabilities can make to our workplaces, communities and economy.

By preventing and removing barriers that hinder the participation and inclusion of the approximately 15 per cent of British Columbians over the age of 15 that currently self-identify as having a disability, B.C. will be a better place to live, work and visit for everyone.
