About the Survey

The Village of New Denver is committed to improving accessibility for all citizens. To meet current accessibility legislation in BC, the Village is creating an Accessibility Plan with input from an Accessibility Advisory Committee, or AAC. This survey has been developed by New Denver’s AAC – a group of local volunteers and a Village Council Representative.

What is accessibility?

  • Accessibility means that all people can take part in their communities through work, play, and other daily activities. 
  • Accessibility is important for everyone, especially people with disabilities.
  • Accessibility is about removing barriers and increasing inclusion and independence for everyone.

New Denver’s Accessibility Plan identifies community needs and planning priorities and aims to direct resources where they are needed most. The AAC is asking the community to complete this survey to assist in the development of the plan.

To access this survey, you can:
