CNIB Foundation expands virtual program offerings across Canada
In response to COVID-19, the CNIB Foundation has expanded its virtual program offerings across Canada.
Whether it's career support, tech training, youth groups or book clubs, we're combating social isolation and transforming our communities into beacons of accessibility and inclusion, where everyone can live, work and play without barriers. Funded by charitable donations and enabled by the selfless contributions of volunteers, our innovative programs and powerful advocacy are driving change in communities from coast to coast to coast.
CNIB's New Virtual Programs
Stay connected from your home with these exciting new programs and events!
Until the end of April, CNIB will be hosting a variety of virtual programs that you can participate in over the phone or online! These include:
Telephone Socials: These socials provide an opportunity to connect with people from across the province and often have a focus, whether it's a facilitated discussion, a guest speaker, or trivia and games.
An Employment Series: During Fridays' "Let's Talk About," we will speak with someone with sight loss working in an interesting field of work and then will discuss an employment-related topic.
Tech It Out: During Tech It Out, we will be sharing new technology and apps. These sessions will be more formal with Steve presenting on a number of new apps that can be downloaded and used at home.
As always, you can meet with our staff via telephone. If you're unsure how to schedule a meeting with a CNIB Foundation staff person in Nova Scotia, please email email@example.com and he will forward your message to the appropriate person.
