Help us break down barriers. CNIB is proud to work alongside Canadians who are blind or partially sighted to smash social and systemic barriers and advocate for an inclusive society.
Third level terms
When we fight for rights, they become ingrained in society. Only through passionate, committed and tireless work will once-marginalized groups realize change. CNIB's advocacy efforts seek to bring about that change so Canadians who are blind, Deafblind, or have low vision can participate fully as equal citizens. Find out more about advocacy campaigns across the country.
Become an advocate! When facing barriers to inclusion, knowing how to advocate effectively for yourself and others is key. Join us and learn how to advocate to support causes that matter to you.
Know Your Rights
Through the Know Your Rights project, CNIB has developed plain language legal information and resources (fact sheets, videos, training, etc.) to empower people who are blind, partially sighted or Deafblind to better understand their rights, navigate provincial legal systems and self-advocate to challenge discrimination.
Community Engagement Volunteer Program
CNIB is advocating alongside community members across Canada to break down societal barriers to accessibility and create a more inclusive society for people living with sight loss. We have created resources to support community members when engaging in advocacy in their local communities, whether as a formal CNIB Community Engagement Volunteer, a person living with sight loss, or an ally who wants to help bring about change.
