District of Squamish is inviting the community to take part in a survey about an Accessibility Plan the District is developing. This survey is designed to be completed in 15 minutes or less, and all questions are optional. The survey is completely anonymous and will only be reported back as a summary of feedback.
Those who prefer not to complete the survey online can email email@example.com(External link) for alternative options.
The District of Squamish is creating an Accessibility Plan, which will identify barriers for people with disabilities accessing District facilities, programs, services, and information. This could mean barriers at District facilities such as Municipal Hall, the Library, or Brennan Park, or infrastructure such as sidewalks, trails, or playgrounds, or even the way District shares information related to job postings, council meetings and news updates.
“Your input will help us develop our accessibility plan. It will take time to remove all barriers, however, this plan is the first step in identifying how we can improve accessibility going forward,” District says.
In 2021, the Province passed the Accessible BC Act, which requires municipalities to develop an accessibility plan that addresses all aspects of accessibility related to municipal infrastructure, programs, and services.
