Accessibility Feedback Form

The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District and City of Port Alberni are in the process of developing an Accessibility Plan for the Alberni-Clayoquot Region. The Accessibility Plan will guide both local governments on identifying, removing, and preventing barriers to individuals in or interacting with our organizations.

The Accessibility Plan will be developed with the support and input of an Accessibility Committee and will consider the principles of inclusion, adaptability, diversity, collaboration, self-determination, and universal design. The Plan will be open for input from the public and will be made available to the public in spring 2024.

For more details on this collaborative project, please refer to the News Release
