BC’s New Accessiblity Act

If you didn’t know, this summer, BC passed its own Accessibility Act.

“The Accessible British Columbia Act makes B.C. more inclusive for people with disabilities.”, and aims to remove barriers, which it defines as “anything that stops people with disabilities from being included,” which includes education.

While the implementation is still in its infancy, everyone in public service needs to pay attention!  The Provincial Accessibility Committee will be developing standards and determining the order of implementation of said standards, so stay tuned for more as this legislation develops.

You can find out more about the timeline for implementation by viewing the Accessible BC Act Implementation Timeline PDF.
