Accessible BC Act

The Government of British Columbia is working towards being an inclusive province. There are over 926,000 people with a disability in B.C., which is 5.4% of our population. In June 2021, the Accessible BC Act became law. The Act provides a framework to identify, remove and prevent barriers to accessibility, including physical, technological, informational, sensory, systemic, and attitudinal barriers.

More information about the Act can be found at

To facilitate the work of the Accessible BC Act, the Kootenay Library Federation has overhauled their website to increase accessibility. If you would like to offer feedback, we would be happy to hear from you. Please email
