Building a Better B.C. for People with Disabilities

The BC government is committed to building a better B.C. for people with disabilities. We work with the disability and business communities, to help:

  • Create opportunities for meaningful employment,
  • Support greater independence, and
  • Provide full community participation

for people with disabilities in B.C.

Building a Truly Inclusive B.C.

Government has a vision to make BC a truly inclusive province by 2024. This vision is designed around 12 building blocks. They reflect what was heard from British Columbians during the province-wide disability consultation.

Being truly inclusive means:

  • Providing people of all abilities with the opportunity to fully participate in their communities
  • Challenging our attitudes and beliefs about disabilities
  • Recognizing the value and contributions that people with disabilities make to our workplaces, communities and economy

Approximately 15 per cent of British Columbians over 15 years old self-identify as having a disability. Our goal is to prevent and remove barriers so everyone can participate and feel included. This way, B.C. will be a better place to live, work and visit for everyone.
