Join us on The Path to Change

Introducing CNIB’s new strategic plan

CNIB is proud to unveil The Path to Change, a bold new strategic plan that will take the organization from today to our 100th anniversary in 2018, and set the stage for our second century of operation.

This plan presents an ambitious agenda for change – one that is informed by the voices of those we serve and rooted in their rights and needs, as well as the realities of Canada’s impending vision loss crisis. It’s a plan that examines the complex roles we play as a provider of health services and as a charity, and looks to redefine those roles for the future. At the same time, it reinforces our commitment to excellence in our ongoing work across the country."

Ultimately, it calls for us to work in partnership with those we serve, as well as provincial governments, the medical community, volunteers and supporters, to create a future in which every person has the opportunity to fully participate in life.

If you believe in this future too, we ask you to join us. Our success in achieving these ambitious goals will depend on your support and engagement. To learn more or get involved, contact us at

Launching our new direction

The Path to Change was officially unveiled at CNIB’s 2014 annual general meeting, held on September 6 in Regina, SK. President and CEO John M. Rafferty spoke to attendees about our bold new direction and the inspirational difference we hope to make in the lives of Canadians who are blind or partially sighted.
