CNIB 100

CNIB a century of change 100 years


CNIB is celebrating a century of changing lives. March 31, 2017 will mark the first day of our 100th year.

Since being founded in 1918 by veterans who were blinded in World War I and the Halifax Explosion, we have been creating programs, providing services and advocating to change the lives of people with sight loss — from children to youth, to adults and seniors.

To celebrate our centennial, CNIB will be celebrating through honouring and storytelling, with a focus on the people – past and present – who have contributed to changing what it is to be blind today.
