CNIB calls on the Canadian Border Services Agency to ensure new app – ArriveCAN – is accessible to all
"Recently, I found a significant bug with VoiceOver on the iPhone when I tried to access the ArriveCAN app," says Robert Fenton, a member of CNIB’s National Board. "As someone with sight loss, it was impossible to move beyond the privacy screen on the app. This is yet another example of programs and services, including apps, not being ‘born accessible’ and thus creating more barriers for Canadians with disabilities. Simply put, this must end."

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.
