CLA releases CAP Toolkit

The federal government recently announced that it is cutting the Community Access Program (CAP). All CLA members are encouraged to contact their Members of Parliament to protest the cut and urge them to reconsider the value of the program.

The CLA Member Toolkit for CAP provides you with a sample letter to send to your MP, details on requesting a meeting, key speaking points, and information on how to contact MPs.

Do you have stories about the impact of CAP in your community? Share them with your MP, in a letter or in person. These stories provide strong evidence of the importance of the program.

Contact your MP today!

We want to thank everyone who has raised this issue with their communities and their MPs. @Cqualtro has championed disability rights in the past and we're hoping she will help #RestoreAccesibleBookFunding now https:/ww.cbc.ca/news/politics/accessible-reading-funding-cut-1.5938122

It's #WorldBookDay and we should be celebrating. Instead we are fighting on behalf of 1 in 10 Canadians with print disabilities. Please RT to help us convince @CQualtro and @cafreeland not to cut $4 million in funding for #accessible books 3 million Canadians rely on. #cdnpoli
