As stated on our home page, Access for Sight Impaired Consumers (ASIC) is an independent, consumer-driven advocacy coalition that promotes awareness of blindness-related issues and champions the removal of systemic barriers that impede the independent access for residents of British Columbia who are blind, partially sighted, or deafblind. If you know of a systemic barrier that affects persons with sight loss which prevents them from accessing or fully taking part in an event or service that is available to a sighted person, our volunteers would be happy to hear of your concern through any one of the contact methods listed below.
We are also willing to provide pro bono advice and direction on how best to self-advocate for the removal of a barrier that affects you personally.
Heavy demands may dictate when our experienced and valued volunteers are able to respond to your inquiry whether it be a systemic issue or a request for self-advocacy assistance. We respond to incoming requests in the order they are received and do our best to respond promptly. When workloads and timelines require mor of our attention, our response may take up to (but no more than) a 4 business day window.
