Canadian National Institute for the Blind

CNIB is a charity that provides support, knowledge and voice to empower Canadians, who are blind or partially sighted, to have the confidence, independence and support they need to see beyond vision loss and participate fully in life. Also, CNIB also strives to promote vision health through education to eliminate avoidable sight loss.

They're truly the heart and soul of our organization, and they do everything from producing accessible library materials, to coordinating CNIB events, to working with people who are blind or partially sighted right in their own homes and communities.
