The Provincial Resource Centre for the Visually Impaired (PRCVI) is a Ministry of Education Provincial Resource Program
established to assist school districts in educating students whose access to learning is restricted due to a visual
impairment or blindness.
PRCVI supports School Districts and Group I or II independent schools in British Columbia by providing alternate
formats including braille, tactile graphics, digital text and large print of BC recommended learning resources to
meet the instructional needs of these students. Specialized and adapted learning materials are also available.
In addition PRCVI provides professional development and consultation support to BC vision teachers and other school
personnel working with students with visual impairments.
