Recreation Groups

CNIB leisure group programs address the unique needs of people living with vision loss. The programs provide an opportunity for members to receive support as they adjust to their vision loss, to relearn skills, develop new ones, and regain self-confidence.

Run by people with vision loss, these leisure groups encourage social interaction and friendship for individuals who feel isolated and alone. Most run from September through May. 

The following groups are actively recruiting new members in Regina and Saskatoon.
