Transition Support Services

We all experience changes in our lives. Transition involves moving from where you are now to where you want to be. Adapting to this change can be liberating and exciting – but it can also be an uncertain and confusing time.

Whether you are transitioning from high school to college or university, searching for employment, or looking to do something else, CNIB’s Transition Support Service is available to help you prepare for the future.

In partnership with the Atlantic Provinces Special Education Authority (APSEA) and the Francophone Vision Education Service, CNIB’s Transition Advisor is available to help young New Brunswickers with sight loss – ages 14 to 29 – every step of the way.

Together, you and CNIB’s Transition Advisor will create an action plan to map out your goals and how you will go about achieving them.

Services include:

  • Getting job ready
  • Support during post- secondary studies
  • Life skills, including independent travel, technology, and self- advocacy
  • Life enrichment opportunities, such as group, social and recreation activities based on individual interests
  • Connection with mentors and peer support

“The services I’ve been provided by the Vision Loss Rehabilitation program have had a great and positive impact on my life. It’s influence has made the process of moving forward feel far less intimidating, and with help and support I have been able to make progress in my search for employment. I’m happy and excited to continue working with them in the future.” ~ Troy D.

“CNIB’s Transition Support Service is the answer to my needs. I feel listened to and my needs are respected. I feel understood and I am learning to see my future differently with the help of these services.” ~ Roger V.

Transition services are funded by The Government of Canada and the Province of New Brunswick through the Canada-New Brunswick Labour Market Agreement.
