There are over 926,000 people with disabilities in British Columbia and the Government of B.C. is committed to and working towards becoming a more inclusive province. In June of 2021, the Accessible British Columbia Act became law. The Act provides the framework to identify, remove and prevent barriers to accessibility in the province.
Over 750 organizations in B.C., including local governments, are taking steps to ensure that programs, services, and environments enable everyone to participate fully in society and without barriers.
