The Accessible Resource Centre – British Columbia (ARC-BC) is an online repository supported by the Ministry of Education to provide BC K-12 students with perceptual disabilities with BC curricular-based learning materials in digital alternate formats. Educators serving students with perceptual disabilities can search the ARC-BC repository for a print title that is in a digital alternate format that meets the access requirements of the student. Registration is free for BC educators.
