Reminder -- Community engagement research project -- call for participants

We are posting the following announcement on behalf of Christine Nieder, an AEBC member from British Columbia who is currently pursuing a Masters in Education at Simon Fraser University.  
Re: Community Engagement Project
The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between early community engagement and skill sets obtained, compared against the success of employment of blind, deafblind and partially sighted Canadians between the ages of 22-64. 
You have been invited to participate in this study as a blind or partially sighted individual between the ages of 22-64 living in Canada in relationship to your early community engagement experiences, skill sets gained, measured against your success in employment. As the researcher, I am interested in learning about the relationship between these factors and how early community engagement positively influences blind and partially sighted individuals in adulthood.
I am requesting your participation in an online questionnaire that will take 20-25 minutes of your time.
Full details on the study procedures, risks to participants, benefits to the study can be found before agreeing to participate at
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the researcher, Christine Nieder at
Thank you for your participation and please feel free to distribute this message to other potential participants.
Christine Nieder, MEd Candidate
