With its rich cultural heritage, world-class science and technology, and an economy focused on sustainability, Western Canada is a role model for meeting the challenges of the future.

I look forward to working together as part of the close partnership between our two countries.

Note on barrier-free access

The Consulate General supports citizens with disabilities and strives to facilitate their access to staff within the limits of the architectural constraints.

Access to the World Trade Center (999 Canada Place), where the Consulate General Vancouver is located, is barrier-free. There are two ways to get into the building:

In front of the main entrance are a few parking places, which can be used for getting in and out, the curb is partially lowered. On the pillar on the right hand side, in front of the main entrance, is a button that automatically opens the right door for a wide and stepless access. For a longer stay, it is advisable to use the parking spots in the parking garage. The elevators and all doors of the building have a sufficient width and are barrier-free.

The lift from the parking garage to the lobby does not have information in Braille. The four available elevators from the lobby to the seventh floor are featuring Braille. There is no further structural or technical support for blind and visually impaired people.

On the 7th floor, diagonally opposite the entrance to the Consulate General, is a toilet, which is not adapted for the disabled.

Please contact us to make prior arrangements, if you have further questions regarding accessibility, or if you need assistance.
