Click HERE to read the guide

Who is this guide for? Developing Your First Accessibility Plan: A Guide for BC Prescribed Organizations will help staff who have been assigned the task of coordinating or acting as project manager to prepare the organization’s first accessibility plan. This guide focuses on preparing and writing your plan. There will be some general guidance on how to set up a committee and a feedback mechanism, including several templates we have provided in the appendices. Organizations who do not fall under the Accessible BC Act (The Act) may also wish to use this guide to develop their own accessibility plan and we encourage them to do so.

However, if your organization is regulated outside of BC, please check with your provincial or territorial government to learn of your local requirements.

If your organization is a federally regulated entity and therefore governed by the Accessible Canada Act, you can visit the Government of Canada website.
