Opening Doors to Talent with Sight Loss

( View ASL )

Community Partner Information Session
The CNIB Foundation's Come to Work program connects job seekers who are blind or partially sighted with employers who want to discover the full potential of Canada's talent. To boost participation in the world of work, we are:

  • offering job-readiness workshops and technology training
  • partnering with employers to create full-time, part-time and contract work, and paid internships/return ships
  • fostering professional development through innovative mentorships
  • enhancing company culture to provide a competitive edge

CNIB’s Come to Work program connects members of our talented community to prospective employers through innovative networking opportunities and mentorships. We work with employers to encourage inclusive hiring and support them in making their workplace more accessible for people who are blind or visually impaired. We provide job readiness workshops to talent pool members, as well as one on one support and coaching.
