Destination BC actively supports the development and improvement of accessible tourism products, services, and activities to ensure every person can participate in BC’s transformative experiences. In 2019, we improved and enhanced the accessibility planning and travel information on HelloBC.com, including the addition of an Accessibility feature within business listings. To date, over 400 tourism businesses have added the Accessibility feature to their HelloBC listing, helping to build consumer confidence when visitors plan their trip to BC.
