CNIB Foundation – Virtual Program Offerings

Contenu principal

Try something new with the CNIB Foundation! Whether it's career support, tech training, youth groups, cooking classes or book clubs – our virtual programs are guaranteed to keep you entertained and engaged. Programs are free and 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 program start date. If you can't make it, register anyway. If a session is recorded, we'll send a copy to registered participants. When registering, please provide your first and last name, as well as information about any accessibility requirements or accommodations you need in order to attend and fully participate in the session.

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

CNIB Creative Writing Project
We're collecting short works of fiction, essays and poems that feature or highlight the perspectives of Canadians with sight loss in relation to the pandemic. Find your voice. Write your truth. Make your mark. During these unprecedented times, your personal observations and insights are important. Depending on the number of submissions, CNIB will publish some or all submissions online, or in a collection to be made available in accessible formats: (audio, braille, e-text). Register Now.
