Say “SnoWay” to improper snow removal this winter
By: Gabriella Rabaa
Winter weather can make travel conditions treacherous for pedestrians, especially children, seniors, people using strollers, and people with disabilities. When municipalities, businesses, snow removal contractors, and homeowners fail to clear snow and ice, people who are blind or have low vision cannot safely navigate their communities and access public transit, undermining their independence and ability to carry out their daily activities.
Say #SnoWay and advocate for better snow removal in your region!
As snow begins to blanket our streets and sidewalks, CNIB is launching a snow removal advocacy campaign to educate municipalities and the public about the environmental barriers snow and ice-covered sidewalks create for our community and to remind municipalities, businesses, snow removal contractors, and homeowners about their responsibility to clear snow and ice from paths of travel.Learn more about the SnoWay campaign and get involved

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. 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.
