CNIB Candidate Engagement Survey response

Literacy, a fundamental human right, is vital to Canada’s economic growth. It greatly impacts education and employment opportunities.  With access to alternate format literature such as braille, audio and large print, Canadians with print disabilities can be contributing members of society and obtain the required skills and opportunities to live and work independently.

CNIB recently sent a survey to all major party candidates prior to the federal election seeking their views on four key issues affecting Canadians with vision loss: Equitable Literacy Access and the Marrakesh Treaty, Employment, Accessible Prescription Drug Labels and Accessible Point of Sale (POS) Payment and ABM Systems.

CNIB is a non-partisan entity and we present the following summary of responses in the spirit of unbiased information sharing. You can read the full survey responses we received to the CNIB Candidate Engagement Survey below:
