Developing CNIB's next strategic plan

In 2022, CNIB is embarking on one of the most active engagement efforts in its history. As we continue to change what it is to be blind, we're connecting with tens of thousands of people with sight loss to develop our next strategic plan – set to launch in 2023. If you've experienced sight loss, we want to hear from you. This community consultation process will help us chart an ambitious course that will move the needle on important issues that are facing Canadians who are blind or partially sighted.
