British Columbia Proposed Digital Accessibility Legislation

British Columbia has proposed legislation that would give the BC government the ability to create accessibility standards in an effort to build a “barrier-free BC,” says Dan Coulter, the Parliamentary Secretary for Accessibility. Like similar legislation in Manitoba and Nova Scotia, the Act would consult people with disabilities and organizations that serve them when developing standards. This Act would complement British Columbia’s existing “Accessibility 2024” plan, which outlines the province’s goal of accessibility by 2024.
