What is this engagement about?
The Attorney General and Minister Responsible for Housing and the Parliamentary Secretary for Accessibility are working to update the BC Building Code to make new buildings more accessible. The first step invites the public, including people with disabilities, accessibility experts and advocates, code users, Treaty Nations, Indigenous partners, local governments, building owners, construction industry representatives, professional associations and education partners to provide feedback about barriers and priorities to enhance accessibility requirements in new buildings.
Feedback will be accepted until 4pm on January 13, 2022.
How can my contribution make a difference?
Your feedback will help government prioritize which parts of building design present challenges to better help people approach, enter, exit and move through buildings safety and independently. Input will be used to help develop changes to the BC Building Code to make new buildings more accessible.
