In May of 2020, CNIB received a transformational gift from Scotiabank to ensure the futures of youth with sight loss remain as bright as ever.
Scotiabank’s gift was crucial in allowing CNIB to quickly shift their services and develop a wide range of virtual programs to help young people with sight loss when they needed it most. Not only are these programs helping youth stay connected and engaged while warding off significant isolation during the pandemic, they’re also helping them build vital employment and leadership skills that will put them on the road to success in the future.
So far nearly 450 young Canadians with sight loss have participated in these life-changing programs. Now, more than ever, programs like these are essential in helping youth with sight loss achieve their educational and vocational goals.
