Effective Sept. 1 municipalities in B.C. are required to develop an accessibility plan and establish an accessibility engagement group, under the Accessible BC Act.
The City of Kamloops has initiated a review and update of the existing 2018 Accessibility and Inclusion Plan. The updated plan aims to further reduce barriers that hinder the full participation of individuals with visual and invisible impairments.
Residents and caregivers who experience accessibility barriers are encouraged to participate in a survey that is open through May 7.
The survey is online at letstalk.kamloops.ca/accessibilityplan, while paper versions can be found at city hall (downtown at Victoria Street and First Avenue), at the Kamloops Museum and Archives (downtown at Seymour Street and Second Avenue), at the Tournament Capital Centre (next to TRU at 910 McGill Rd.) and at the Westsyde Pool and Fitness Centre, (859 Bebek Rd.).
In addition, city staff will have surveys at the Kamloops Regional Farmers’ Market downtown on April 29 and May 3
