St. Joseph's School | Smithers BC

School Accessibility

All eight CISPG Schools initiated a local School Committee and together, completed the 9 page School Physical Accessibility Audit Checklist in June 2023.  Priorities for the physical plant were identified to share with staff in term 1 of 2023-24 and there will be plans to reconvene a school-based Accessibility Committee as per the Ministry's guidelines and have an initial meeting by Oct. 30, 2023.

Some highlights of priorities in schools for 2023-24 include signage for handicap parking, development of sensory rooms, updated door handles, access by suitable ramps, and even an inclusive/accessible playground.

Please feel free to complete the School Accessibility Feedback form and email it to the school at
