An open source typeface designed in 2019 for the Government of British Columbia by Monotype. Derived from Noto Sans, it supports indigenous languages in B.C.

BC Sans (2.0) is an open-source "living" typeface developed for government to improve the readability and delivery of digital services. It was designed to support special characters and syllabics found in Indigenous Languages in B.C.

“FPCC was pleased to contribute expertise to the development of BC Sans 2.0, an important technology tool for First Nations in B.C. This free, open-source font makes it possible for community members and the general public to digitally render all characters used in the 34 First Nations languages of this land. The investment by the Government of B.C. to develop and adopt this font is an important step towards reconciliation.”

- Bridget Chase, FirstVoices Development Manager, an initiative of the First Peoples' Cultural Council (FPCC).
