Brief talk description
The Canadian Survey on Disability 2017 affords us an opportunity to obtain an updated perspective on the lived experience of disability in Canada. The CNIB Research Team undertook a specific examination of the CSD 2017 data from the sight loss perspective, in order to understand social determinant of health measures within the Canadian sight loss population. We also sought to compare CNIB client data against the Canadian sight loss population. In this presentation, we will highlight the employment, education and accommodation experiences of Canadians with sight loss, as told through the lens of the CSD 2017 data.
