About this event

Do you feel you have equitable access to accessible housing in British Columbia?

Join us on Friday, July 22nd, 2022 from 1:00-3:00pm PT for this inclusive and informative online event on accessible housing in British Columbia.

Presented by the  Disability Foundation  and hosted by the  ConnecTra Society, this next Accessible Community Forum aims to cultivate a conversation between various organizations and our community of people living with disabilities.

Accessible housing is a frequent topic of discussion in our outreach, previous Accessible Community Forums, and affiliated societies’ regular programming. Through our survey and forum, we will build on our current knowledge and broaden our collective understanding of your needs and how best to accommodate them.

With one in five Canadians (and approximately 15% of British Columbians) living with one or more disabilities, it is incredibly important that housing is accessible to all.

Help us explore possible solutions and resources to bridge the gap between the housing accessibility you currently experience, and what they could become. This is an open, honest, and inclusive dialogue between a panel of organizational representatives and our beautiful province's diverse disability community.

This next Accessible Community Forum takes place on Zoom and includes the following panelists;

  • List of panelists coming soon!
