Stay connected from your home with these exciting new programs and events!
Until the end of April, CNIB will be hosting a variety of virtual programs that you can participate in over the phone or online! These include:
Telephone Socials: These socials provide an opportunity to connect with people from across the province and often have a focus, whether it's a facilitated discussion, a guest speaker, or trivia and games.
An Employment Series: During Fridays' "Let's Talk About," we will speak with someone with sight loss working in an interesting field of work and then will discuss an employment-related topic.
Tech It Out: During Tech It Out, we will be sharing new technology and apps. These sessions will be more formal with Steve presenting on a number of new apps that can be downloaded and used at home.
As always, you can meet with our staff via telephone. If you're unsure how to schedule a meeting with a CNIB Foundation staff person in Nova Scotia, please email jeff.deviller@cnib
