CNIB Foundation transitions its Kitchener programs to a hybrid community resource access, and virtual model

Main Content

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CNIB Foundation has been working hard to develop innovative methods to deliver our programs and services when we couldn’t physically be together. Virtual programs have allowed us to be more cost efficient, and to eliminate transportation and geographic barriers for participants. Meaning that we’re able to reach and empower more Kitchener area residents living with sight loss than ever before – no matter where they reside.

As of June 2021, in light of the success, expanded reach, and impact of these virtual programs, CNIB Foundation programs in Kitchener have transitioned to a hybrid community resource access, and virtual program delivery model. This shift in how we deliver our programming will ensure CNIB continues to be effective and impactful in our service delivery model, and will further enable us to work together as a community to maximize support for people with sight loss in the Kitchener area, both through virtual means, and in-person.

We are actively searching out community spaces within the Kitchener area to host future events and in-person programming. Visit to register for virtual programs and watch for further updates regarding community locations to access future CNIB in-person programming.

Please note: For clients in Kitchener, Vision Loss Rehabilitation has relocated to 151 Frederick Street, Suite 200, Kitchener, Ontario. VLR continues to offer in-person services by appointment only. Visit for more details.
