cnib 100 years
1918, cnib was setup to provide food, clothing and sheltered residences for blind veterans returning from World War I. It began with 27 employees serving 1,521 people who were blind, primarily in Toronto, with two “home teachers” providing rehabilitation training in other parts of Canada. CNIB operates community-based services for Canadians who are blind or partially sighted. This includes assistance in returning to school, advice on travelling, and emotional support.
In 2018, cnib celebrates 100 years of service. Come join us On February 24th 2018 as Vision of hope and our Special Guest Frank Spadone usher in another century of service.
