Hitting the Road with the CNIB Mobile Hub

Main Content

CNIB is hitting the road to bring its innovative programs to life for more participants. The CNIB Mobile Hub is a new program delivery model where CNIB visits various communities to deliver in-person programming for people who are blind or partially sighted.

"Whether it is check-in calls, career support, tech training, youth groups, book clubs, coffee chats or essential grocery/prescription shopping, we have been leveraging every opportunity to ensure our participants stay connected," says Angela Bonfanti, Chief Operating Officer, CNIB. "As an organization with a mandate to remove barriers for Canadians who are blind or partially sighted, we must adapt to meet the evolving needs of the community we serve, and the CNIB Mobile Hub pilot is the latest program designed to reach more people in more communities than ever before."
At the CNIB Mobile Hub, participants can benefit from children and youth programming, recreational and social activities, learning and employment workshops, hands-on technology training and product demonstrations. Participants also have access to the latest breakthroughs in assistive technologies, as well as tried-and-true favourites, all available for purchase.
With funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the pilot will take place in Southwestern Ontario from February 28 until September 1.
