City urging residents to have their say on accessibility issues in PG

Do you have an accessibility concern you want to bring up?

Well, the City of Prince George wants to hear from you and other residents regarding this topic.

The feedback request comes on the back of the 2023 – 2026 Accessibility Work Plan, received by council last month. The plan is part of the legal framework established by the Province within the Accessible British Columbia Act.

Last year, City administration worked to meet the requirements of this legislation including the completion of an environmental scan which serves as the foundation of the City’s 2023 – 2026 Accessibility Work Plan.

  • Sidewalks
  • Streets
  • Curbs

“It is really important to us here at the City of Prince George that we take action to identify and remove barriers that prevent the full and equal participation by all our citizens in every aspect of community life,” Mayor Simon Yu said.

“We welcome feedback from our residents on how we can continue to improve accessibility within Prince George. We need people to speak up on what is impacting them because when we know better we can do better.”

The City has developed a new webpage on the Accessibility Plan which can be found here.
