Dear Friends and Colleagues with Vision Loss,

As you know, the employment rate of Canadians who are blind, partially-sighted, and deaf-blind is very low, and the cost of assistive and accessible technology is very high. Given these facts, the CCB is endeavouring to better understand your thoughts, experiences, and goals in these matters so that we may advocate for you more effectively. We want to work with you towards a future with a higher employment rate for those with vision loss as well as increased accessibility and independence.

Our goal is to eliminate or minimize the barriers limiting those with vision loss from acquiring the education of their choice and from entering and thriving in today’s workforce. So help us help you and submit the survey below!

Tell us about your circumstances. Where you are and where do you want to go? We want to help you get there.

Please invest the 7 to 10 minutes it will take to complete the above survey by the new extended date of March 18, 2019. Once finished please forward this email to a friend with vision loss so they also can do it. With the accumulated information you will provide, we will be able to better understand the present status of Canadians with vision loss and to act accordingly. Thank you in advance for your participation.

All the best,


Louise Gillis
National President
