e-2807 (Consumer protection)

Initiated by Samantha Atchison from Kenora, Ontario

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the House of Commons

  • Nearly 1.5 million Canadians are visually impaired;
  • Warning labels should be accessible to all Canadians;
  • The inability to identify hazardous consumer products is a safety risk and a barrier to independent living for the visually impaired;
  • Currently, there is no law to assist visually impaired Canadians with identifying hazardous consumer products; and
  • The government has a stated commitment to accessibility and inclusivity.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to require that warning labels on hazardous consumer products include braille or tactile symbols.
