At the CNIB Mobile Hub, you can participate in children and youth programming, recreational and social activities, learning and employment workshops, hands-on technology training and product demonstrations.

INCA prend la route avec son Mobile hub, pour offrir plus de soutien en région

Pour nous assurer que vous bénéficiez de tout ce dont vous avez besoin, nous avons décidé de sortir pour venir à votre rencontre dans votre région, afin de vous faire découvrir tous nos services et vous en offrir davantage d'occasions d'entrer en contact avec d'autres personnes qui vivent une situation similaire à la vôtre.

Le Hub mobile d'INCA s'installera dans un espace local où nous offrirons un éventail de programmes gratuits en personne aux personnes aveugles ou ayant une vision partielle, ainsi qu'à leurs familles, amis et aidants.

Suivez notre tournée!
