Accessibility Advisory Committee

Accessibility In Peachland

The District of Peachland Accessibility Advisory Committee is seeking your input to inform the development of a plan that will outline strategies and actions to improve accessibility and inclusivity in our community. The plan will focus on ensuring that individuals with disabilities have equal access to facilities, services and opportunities within the community. To help identify barriers it is imperative to engage the community and to hear from diverse voices of persons with disabilities/people caring for persons with disabilities.

The District uses the term "persons with disabilities" to include:

People who experience physical, mental health, cognitive, communication, intellectual, sensory, or age-related impairments. People who lived experience of mental health challenges or substance-use related disabilities.

Accessibility Advisory Committee (PAAC)

With the guiding principles of inclusion, adaptability, diversity, collaboration, self-determination and universal design in mind, the Accessibility Advisory Committee acts as an ongoing advisory board of Council, fulfilling the goals of BC's Accessibility Act. A key role of the committee is to provide advice on mechanisms for the District to receive public feedback on accessibility.

The Accessibility Advisory Committee will have a minimum of five and a maximum of seven members. Committee members are appointed based on their experience and credentials with representation from people with disabilities, people who work with, or care for, people with disabilities, people who represent the diversity of people with disabilities, indigenous people and people who reflect the diversity of persons in BC.
