Accessibility Legislation In-person Community Meeting @ Ballroom - Sandman Vancouver City Centre
Nov 2 @ 2:30 pm – 5:00 pm

There are more than 926,000 British Columbians over the age of 15 with some form of disability. This represents nearly 25% of the population. As the population ages, the number of people with disabilities and the severity of their disabilities are likely to increase.

The B.C. Government is committed to developing new laws, standards, and policies to better support people with disabilities to live with dignity and to meaningfully participate in their communities. Accessibility legislation would empower government, persons with disabilities, and the broader community to work together to identify, remove, and prevent barriers.

Shane Simpson, Minister of Social Development and Poverty Reduction would like your feedback in preparation for the development of new laws, standards and policies.
