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.
The Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction is hosting a community meeting to provide feedback into legislation and to explore ways to build a better B.C. for people with disabilities.
