About the Accessibility Plan

The District of Saanich’s Accessibility Plan outlines how the district will continue its efforts to improve accessibility awareness and the accessibility of our facilities, programs, services, communications and employment opportunities..

The plan builds on our current accessibility achievements to date and has been created to meet the legislated requirements of the Accessible B.C. Act that came into effect in June 2021. This first draft of the plan has been created based on consultation from the District of Saanich Accessibility, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee, and members of various departments within the District of Saanich.
