B.C. Accessibility Summit

On June 16, 2014, our government hosted the B.C. Accessibility Summit that brought together over 300 attendees, including 100 representatives from the disability community, as well as representatives from government and the business community to discuss an action plan that will lead to the long-term realization of B.C. becoming the most progressive place in Canada for people with disabilities. The summit was webcast provincewide and made accessible through ASL interpreter services and closed captioning.

Accessibility 2024: Making B.C. the most progressive place for people with disabilities in Canada by 2024 is the 10-year action plan released at the summit that is designed around 12 building blocks that represent the themes that emerged through the consultation. To ensure accessibility in as many formats as possible, the report is available in a number of formats.
