CapilanoU implements website font that supports Indigenous characters, syllabics

Capilano University has launched a new website font—BC Sans—which accurately displays the special characters and syllabics found in British Columbia’s Indigenous languages. The font is aligned with CapilanoU’s Envisioning 2030 plan and its commitment to inclusive, accessible experiences. “The new font aligns with CapU’s values and respectful practices and ensures our font is highly readable and capable of displaying Indigenous languages properly,” said CapilanoU Manager of Creative Cari Bird. BC Sans is a free, open-source typeface that was developed with input by FirstVoices and investments by the Government of British Columbia.
