Northern BC Tourism Association helps advance accessibility and welcome visitors back to barrier-free attractions


This funding helped develop a self-audit tool and ongoing advisory and training opportunities for local businesses. It’s also helping these businesses become more inclusive by improving the accessibility of their facilities.
