Wheelchair Accessibility

by Evelyne Schaich

I'm from abroad and just a suggestion to you, when placing the accommodations or restaurants just add a wheelchair sign if it is wheelchair accessible, this would be great for me to know at one click, yes this restaurant is also something for us being in a wheelchair.

Thanks so much and kind regards Evelyne from Switzerland

Hello Evelyne,

Thanks for sending in your suggestion to point out which Vancouver hotels and Vancouver restaurants are wheelchair accessible.

If you visit the page called "Vancouver Wheelchair Ramps" and another page called "Handicap Grab Bars" you'll find lots of this information.

All businesses in Vancouver must by law must be accessible to everyone and also have wheelchair accessible washrooms in them.

In order to get a Vancouver business license here in Vancouver city inspectors actually visit the business and check each business to make sure that this is to code and supports the disabled / handicapped sector of our community is followed or they won’t issue a business permit.

This includes all the "must see sights," places to eat in Vancouver, places to shop in Vancouver, places to stay and all the public washrooms in the city have handicap grab bars in Vancouver!

All the best,
