For most of the population of Vancouver, we don't give it a second though because we expect everyone to have equal access!

In fact part of the process to get a business license in Vancouver is that they must be wheelchair accessible and in the case of a restaurants in Vancouver, the washrooms (toilets) also must be handicap accessible including the airport! Vancouver is the city for everyone.

We want you to have equal access to all the must see places and things to do in Vancouver and enjoy our weather in Vancouver (sun or rain!) as much as everyone else!
