Introduction


We are a team of researchers from KITE, the research arm of the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute-University Health Network in Toronto, Canada. 

About This Survey:

We want to learn about your experiences with accessibility in Canada. What are the main barriers to accessibility in Canada? Are there any barriers to accessibility that are not being addressed in existing standards, legislation, and guidelines? We also want to understand if and how these barriers may affect your overall quality of life.

The survey includes 20 to 27 questions and the time needed to complete the survey will vary. 

For the best experience, we recommend that you use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firebox browsers when you take part in this survey.
