As of today, NNELS is available to Canadians with print disabilities (or individuals acting on their behalf), regardless of where they live.
Yesterday, NNELS users had to live in a participating province or territory. Today, the door is open to every eligible reader through their local public library.
NNELS is 100% funded by the governments of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Saskatchewan, and Yukon.
The only restrictions on libraries and readers in non-participating provinces (these include New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, and Québec) are that they cannot make requests for new books, and connectors are not included in their membership.
