SPARC BC is excited to announce the opening of our video library. Our talented staff are creating short videos on how to use our services, accessibility and inclusion work in our communities, and more. Stay tuned!
ACCESSIBLE PARKING DESIGN CHARRETTE
SPARC BC has been working with the City of Vancouver to test five different accessible parking standards, at a physical location.
Participants from various disability organizations spent a day helping us to test and evaluate the different standards, in a range of modified vehicles. After an analysis of user responses, the City of Vancouver arrived at a few conclusions that were presented at the next council meeting.
Acccessible or Not
Finding adequate, designated accessible parking spaces, remains an ongoing challenge for people living with disabilities. We know the difference that we can make together when we Say Yes to Access!
Renewing Your Permit
SPARC BC has been finding innovative ways to cope with the challenges of the pandemic. We have had to make some changes to our customer experience, but our staff have always been available to support customers through these disruptions.
We appreciate your patience and flexibility around our new parking permit renewal process, for example. Here is a glimpse of how it works, if you have not yet been to the office for your renewal.
Access Awareness Day
Access Awareness Day 2021 was SPARC BC’s 24th annual celebration to promote accessibility and inclusion. It’s a day for communities to come together to celebrate what it means to be truly accessible and inclusive.
By working together, it is possible to create communities where everyone can share their talents and abilities in meaningful ways. We know the difference we can make together when we “Say Yes to Access.”
