British Columbia Voters: Vision Accessibility Related to the BC Province-wide Referendum on Proportional Representation
by Albert Ruel

A referendum on which voting system British Columbia should use for provincial elections is being held between October 22 and November 30, 2018.

Registered voters will receive a voting package in the mail between October 22 and November 2. If you do not receive a voting package or are not currently a registered voter, you can ask for one from Elections BC, a Referendum Service Office or a Service BC location by November 23.

For this referendum, voters who read braille can request a braille template package and ballot question to be used when completing the mail-in voting package.

Please call Elections BC at 1-800-661-8683 to request a braille template and ballot question, or if you
have any questions regarding voting in the referendum. Information on the voting systems featured in
the referendum can also be found at
elections.bc.ca.

We have set a overall theme to our site to give it a new look and feel. There will be some major changes over the next couple months.

We welcome all members input into the overall reconstruction of the site. We are striving to make the site assessable to all of our members with both limited and no sight. Also to make it easier to access from search engines so people can learn about how our organization can help.

Canadian Accessibility Guidelines Survey

A committee has been organized through the Canadian Institute of
Transportation Engineers that has been tasked with reviewing accessibility
guidelines published by various levels of government across Canada.
As a result, a survey has been designed to provide the committee with
feedback in regards to the following:
    * *  the ease in which people with disabilities use the public
infrastructure.
    * * the guidelines and standards currently used by Canadian road
authorities that address the provision of accessible public infrastructure
in the public right-of-way
Your participation and feedback will assist with the development of
uniform accessibility guidelines across Canada.
You can access the survey by visiting:
<https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8FB8FKN>https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8FB
8FKN

Completion  of the survey is requested by February 24, 2017. We suggest
you complete it today rather than putting it off until later.
If you have any questions about this survey please contact Alexandre
Nolet, P.Eng., M.Eng at
