Steering Committee Member
Barrier Free Canada

Dear Ms. Jodhan,

Re: CNIB support for Barrier Free Canada.

It’s my pleasure to express CNIB’s full support for the effort to enact strong and effective disability legislation at the federal level.

CNIB works with people who are blind or partially sighted across Canada to ensure that we live in an accessible and inclusive society. Disability legislation at the federal level will contribute to breaking down existing barriers and preventing new ones from being created.

CNIB endorses the principles put forward by Barrier Free Canada, and we look forward to the day when the federal government enacts strong and effective legislation to protect the rights of Canadians with disabilities.
