CHHA-BC AGM - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Can someone post the stream text link here.
How will the BC Act differ from the Federal Act and why do we need a provincial Act in the light of there being a Federal Act?
Will the Act eventually have sufficient ‘teeth’ that will enable citizens to obtain access when they do encounter barriers
Are you able to elaborate at all on how the committee members will be able selected? Or is this information we need to wait on until the Act is passed?
Who will be prescribing which other organizations will be subject to the Accessible BC Act" Also, will "government" include municipalities and local government be subject also?
Is there a space for youth with disabilities to be involved in the meaningful participation of the accessibility standards via technical committees, provincial accessibility committees?
What particular definition does your legislation use in using the concept of disability? Does it include mental disability as well physical and sensory disabilities?
Just to follow up on the Minister's remarks to Bowen's question, we have launched an initial webpage that will continue to be updated as we move forward with this work. https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/governments/about-the-bc-government/accessibility/legislation
Will there be space on the technical committees for representatives from organizations as well as individual persons - parents, youth, adults, etc?
you are muted
I have a question around masks.
For those interested, full text of the proposed legislation is available here: https://www.leg.bc.ca/parliamentary-business/legislation-debates-proceedings/42nd-parliament/2nd-session/bills/first-reading/gov06-1
Thank you Brady for sharing the link. Is there a contact information that we can use to express our interests later on?
I was wondering if there has been any work on clear face masks especially clear face masks that are medical grade.
That is my question
Hey Bowen - there will be a provincial expression of interest for members of the Provincial Accessibility Committee. I'd recommend keeping an eye on the web page and we'll be sure to promote it out through MLAs social media accounts including the Ministers!
Sounds good! Thank you.
Should you or anyone on this call have questions moving forward, feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or to the Minister at SDPR.Minister@gov.bc.ca
We've also put out a high-level timeline on our work here: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/assets/gov/government/about-the-bc-government/accessible-bc/accessibility-legislation-gantt.pdf
