Accessibility around the city

Walking on Granville Island, Vancouver, BC

Vancouver welcomes visitors of all abilities from around the world to enjoy our beautiful city.

The City is committed to creating an accessible community by removing barriers that might keep you, or someone you care about, from fully enjoying Vancouver.

Accessible streets benefit everyone. Curb ramps and bus ramps make getting around the city easy, especially for those pushing strollers and using wheelchairs, scooters, walkers, and canes.

Audible street signals and curb cuts in the sidewalk help pedestrians with vision impairments cross the street.
