CNIB's Virtual Program Offerings

Main Content

Join us! Whether it’s children and youth groups, employment workshops, tech sessions or book clubs, our innovative programs are designed to educate, entertain and engage! Our free programs are available to Canadians who are blind or partially sighted as well as their families, friends and caregivers.

We kindly ask participants to register for programs at least one business day before the start date. If you can’t join us, register anyway. If a program is recorded, we’ll send the recording to registered participants. When registering, please provide your first name and last name, as well as any accessibility accommodations you require to attend and fully participate in the program.

Below, you'll find a snapshot of some of our global virtual program offerings. *For local program offerings in your province, visit: cnib.ca/en/event.
