British Columbia Proposed Digital Accessibility Legislation

British Columbia passed legislation in 2021 that gives the BC government the ability to create accessibility standards in an effort to build a “barrier-free BC,” stated by Dan Coulter, the Parliamentary Secretary for Accessibility. Like similar legislation in Manitoba and Nova Scotia, the Act consulted people with disabilities and organizations that serve them to develop these standards. This Act complements British Columbia’s existing “Accessibility 2024” plan, which outlines the province’s goal of accessibility by 2024.
