Regional Accessibility Committee - Town of Gibsons

In accordance with the Accessible British Columbia Act, Council passed a resolution to establish the Accessibility Advisory Committee on December 15, 2022. In 2023, the Committee was dissolved and a Regional Accessibility was formed together with the Town of Gibsons, the District of Sechelt and the Sunshine Coast Regional District.

The Regional Accessibility Advisory Committee’s (RAAC) purpose is to assist local government leaders to identify barriers to individuals in, or interacting with, our local governments, and to advise the local governments on how to remove and prevent barriers to individuals in, or interacting with, their local government.

In developing and updating its accessibility plan, the following principals must be considered: inclusion, adaptability, diversity, collaboration, self-determination, and universal design.
