April 24, 2020

Vancouver Community College’s Building B at the Broadway campus has been officially certified through the Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification (RHFAC) program. The RHFAC program aims to improve the accessibility of the constructed environments for people with vision, hearing, and mobility disabilities, and the certification recognizes meaningful access to the building for people of all abilities. The program rates areas such as accessible routes to the main entrances, accessible outdoor parking lots, proximity to transit, wayfinding, and emergency systems. “This achievement is a proud accomplishment for VCC and speaks to our values of being accessible and inclusive for everyone,” said VCC president Ajay Patel.
