Accessibility at Cedars Christian School

At Cedars Christian School, we recognize the importance of accessibility not only for those with disabilities but also for the benefit of the entire school community, providing a learning and working environment that supports all students, staff, and the larger school community.

Accessible B.C. Act

The Accessible British Columbia Regulation, under the Accessible British Columbia Act, came into effect on September 1, 2022. The goal of the act is to improve opportunities for people with disabilities and involve them in identifying, removing, and preventing barriers to their full participation in the life of the province.

Legislation – Accessible BC Act
Regulation – Accessible BC Act
Accessibility Legislation Plain Language Summary

Important Definitions from the Accessible B.C. Act:

Disability: An inability to participate fully and equally in society as a result of the interaction of an impairment and a barrier.

Barrier: Anything that hinders the full and equal participation in society of a person with an impairment.​

Impairment: A physical, sensory, mental, intellectual, or cognitive impairment, which is permanent, temporary, or episodic.

Implementation of the Accessible BC Regulation

Accessibility Committee: The Society of Christian Schools in BC (SCSBC), of which Cedars is a member school, established an accessibility committee in May 2023. The committee, in consultation with SCSBC schools, developed an Accessibility Plan.

Accessibility Plan: The Cedars Christian School Accessibility Plan outlines our commitment to accessibility and the actions in our Three-Year Accessibility Plan for 2023-26. Feedback about the Accessibility Plan may be made by contacting our school-based Accessibility Team at accessibility@cedars.bc.ca.

Mechanism for Reporting Accessibility Accomplishments and Barriers: We have developed an online survey to provide a mechanism to provide input about accessibility accomplishments and barriers at our school (see below). The surveys are reviewed quarterly by our school-based Accessibility Team and the SCSBC Accessibility Committee, and are taken into consideration for future versions of the plan.
