All British Columbians have a right to access their government. That means giving a group that represents a small percentage of the total population equal importance as the larger population. Accessibility means making it easier for everyone to participate.

Accessibility covers a wide range of needs and isn’t always visible, such as: dyslexia, arthritis and low-literacy. For that reason, we have created some checklists to use when planning different aspects of your engagement. Please see Appendix B for guidelines on hosting an accessible engagement.

Always make sure to plan ahead and provide contractors with a copy of these guidelines.
