Teaching and Learning Centre


The Accessible British Columbia Act Steering Committee was launched in the summer to guide UFV in fulfilling its legislative obligations and to improve the university’s accessibility in all aspects. The Accessible UFV website has been developed to keep both the UFV community and the general public informed about the work being done to improve accessibility at the university, and to facilitate feedback and participation in the university’s accessibility initiatives.

Accessibility is the practice of making your materials usable by as many people as possible. It ensures that all users can access and use the information provided in the way that they need. Here you will find some helpful resources on ensuring your course materials and other documents are accessible.
