The Peace River Regional District is collaborating with the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality, and PRRD member communities (Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, Chetwynd, Tumbler Ridge, Hudson’s Hope, Pouce Coupe, and Taylor)  to ensure we’re meeting the requirements of the provincial Accessible BC Act.

Accessibility needs exist regardless of municipal boundaries, and by working together, we have an opportunity to build efficiencies throughout the region and create an integrated approach to accessibility.​


This Accessibility Plan was created by municipalities across Northeastern BC, including the PRRD, to support collaborative and efficient efforts to improve accessibility. Working together provides a unique opportunity to share resources, knowledge, and build collective skills. It also helps community members to have reliable access across the region.

Accessibility for people with disabilities is a shared responsibility. There are many layers to accessibility, such as physical accessibility, accessible information and technology, social and cultural inclusion, environments that are safe and inclusive, and more. Ensuring that our communities are accessible requires knowledge building and application of that knowledge in many different aspects of our society.
