Accessibility Plan Development
As required in the Accessible British Columbia Regulation under the Accessible BC Act, all local governments in B.C. must take steps towards developing an Accessibility Plan in 2023. The Accessibility Advisory Committee will help guide the TNRD in the creation of this plan.
The purpose of the TNRD Accessibility Plan is to identify barriers to accessibility and inclusion that may be experienced by members of the public or TNRD staff. Barriers may be present in the built environment, information and communications, or the delivery of programs or services that are within the TNRD’s jurisdiction.

A draft of the TNRD Accessibility Plan will be created once public engagement opportunities have closed and feedback has been provided by the TNRD Accessibility Committee.
Prior to being presented to the TNRD Board of Directors, a draft of the Accessibility Plan will be presented to the Accessibility Advisory Committee for feedback and suggestions.
