BC announces expansion of Accessible British Columbia Act to postsecondary institutions

The Government of British Columbia has announced that it will be expanding the Accessible British Columbia Act to include a variety of public-sector organizations, including postsecondary institutions. Institutions will be required to establish accessibility committees, accessibility plans, and public-feedback mechanisms to meet the requirements of the Accessible British Columbia Regulation. BC will allocate $3M over three years to help organizations meet the new legal requirements. “For too long, people with disabilities have had to live with too many barriers,” said BC Parliamentary Secretary for Accessibility Dan Coulter. “Integrating accessibility into every area of everyday life is key to building a better community for everyone.” Kamloops Now| BC Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
