British Columbia Framework for Accessibility Engagement Legislation

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.

The opportunity to provide feedback will be open from September 16 to November 29, 2019 at 4 pm

After the consultation period ends, the B.C. Government will provide a summary of the feedback and input that has been received. Your feedback and input will be used to inform the development of accessibility legislation for B.C.

We hope you will participate and look forward to your contributions.
