Accessible BC Act Impact on Independent Schools and Post-Secondary Institutions

In British Columbia, the Accessible British Columbia Act requires select organizations, including independent schools and post-secondary institutions, to follow a set of guidelines aimed at making their businesses and content more accessible to people with disabilities. This legal requirement is to be met by September 1, 2023. Organizations that do not follow the rules can be fined up to $250,000.

Similar acts exist in Ontario, Manitoba, and Nova Scotia, each with their own timelines. In summary, the BC Act states that by September 2023, the institutions must have: 

  • Established an accessibility committee
  • Developed an accessibility plan
  • Established a process for receiving public feedback
  • Aimed to review their plan every 3 years

Our Commitment to Accessible Virtual Tours

At 360Pros, we are committed to promoting accessibility and inclusivity through our virtual tours. While we are not legal consultants and cannot provide legal advice, we want to make schools aware of these new regulations and offer general guidance to those exploring virtual tours. 

This post focuses on the BC Act, but the advice can be used as general guidance for virtual tours in any location.
