About the Project

The Accessible Organizations Project is a project funded by the Government of British Columbia and led by Disability Alliance BC. The purpose of the project is to support over 750 Prescribed Organizations meet the requirements of the Accessible BC Act. Disability Alliance BC is working directly with our partners and collaborators in all sectors to reach Prescribed Organizations and provide them with resources and services to establish a committee, develop a plan, and create a public feedback mechanism.
