Participants Needed for Research.

Community Notes. August 26, 2006.

CNIB is conducting a study that focuses on the positive employment-related experiences of people living with vision loss.

There is lots of information about the barriers, and very little on how people living with vision loss achieve success. This study is designed to learn more about the factors that help people living with vision loss find success in their job search.

We are looking for people who are willing to complete a short survey (online or telephone) in which they reflect on the role that various factors have played in their finding work that satisfies them.

Eligibility Criteria

Must be a Canadian citizen living with vision loss

Must have looked for work over the past two years (it does not matter if you were employed while looking for work or whether or not you are currently employed)

Proficient in English

If you meet these criteria and are interested, please contact:

Please note: This project is funded by Social Development Canada and approved by the Research Ethics Board of the University of Toronto.
