Update: CLBC’s Accessibility Survey is now closed. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback!
Community Living BC (CLBC) is inviting individuals and families and those who support them, as well as CLBC staff who have a disability, to complete this survey so we can learn more about removing barriers at CLBC.
This 15-minute survey asks questions about barriers that people with disabilities may face when:
- getting information from CLBC,
- visiting CLBC offices,
- talking with CLBC staff, and
- working at CLBC.
Accessibility is about removing barriers and increasing inclusion for everyone, especially people with disabilities. Accessibility is one of the principles that the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is based on.
A barrier can be anything that stops people with disabilities from being included. For example, some barriers can stop people from going into buildings or using computer programs. Sometimes people’s attitudes towards disability can be a barrier.
The B.C. government made a new law called the Accessible British Columbia Act to make B.C. more inclusive and accessible for people with disabilities. Here is a plain language summary of the Accessibility Act.
CLBC is following this new law by creating a CLBC accessibility plan to remove and prevent barriers when people with disabilities and those who support them interact with CLBC.
If you need help with completing the survey, send an email to: CLBCInfo@gov.bc.ca
