Equalize – December 2018
Welcome to the December edition of Equalize! In this issue, we celebrate the legal accreditation for CNIB Guide Dogs. We also gain insight into CNIB's response to the Ontario Ministry of Education's "For the Parents" consultation, and we hear from someone with sight loss who participated in a mock evacuation as part of first responder training. Plus, CNIB recommends amendments to the Accessible Canada Act and we learn more about "Smart Cities".
