CNIB Lake Joe – Book Your Holiday Week
As we continue to explore opportunities for our community to visit CNIB Lake Joe safely, we’re piloting Holiday Week programs in August.
This new offering invites guests who are blind or partially sighted to visit CNIB Lake Joe with family members from the same household.
Holiday Weeks will focus on independent, self-directed activities. There will be no formal programming offered. Instead, guests are encouraged to choose their own adventure and build their own experiences.

When I'm dreaming, I'm not blind
Created by the First Nations support group at CNIB in Thunder Bay, “When I’m dreaming, I’m not blind” takes listeners on a powerful journey of what it’s like to navigate sight loss as an Indigenous person in Northern Ontario.
The First Nations storytellers share their deeply personal stories and experiences with blindness while exploring obstacles, bullying, connection to land, helpers, Elders and language, mending and hope.
Celebrate 60 years with CNIB Lake Joe!
For 60 years, CNIB Lake Joe has been providing enriching camp experiences for Canadians with sight loss – where children are encouraged to shine, youth are empowered to thrive, and 'kids of all ages' enjoy recreational pursuits. Jump in and join us as we celebrate our 60th Anniversary all year long! Whether online or in-person, we’ll be celebrating CNIB Lake Joe and everyone who has made it such a special place to be.

Virtual Vision Mate
The Virtual Vision Mate program gives volunteers an opportunity to engage in friendly conversations with people who are blind or partially sighted.
Your support is urgently needed during this unprecedented time. You can schedule your chats on a set day and time every week, or you can schedule week-to-week, whatever works for both of you.
Make a difference for people who are blind or partially sighted by providing sighted assistance and companionship to a person in your community who is blind or partially sighted.
