Funded by charitable donations and enabled by the selfless contributions of volunteers, our innovative programs and powerful advocacy drive change in communities from coast to coast to coast. Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) CNIB is a registered charity, passionately providing community-based support, knowledge and a national voice to ensure Canadians who are blind or partially sighted have the confidence, skills and opportunities to fully participate in life. Your CNIB card gives you benefits like discounts and services from governments, businesses and community partners. They vary by location and may include: Free or discounted events and attractions admissions for you or your sighted guide to. Additional accessibility services from banks and other businesses. About Us. Celebrating 100 years in 2018, the CNIB Foundation is a non-profit organization driven to change what it is to be blind today. The CNIB Foundation, Vision Loss Rehabilitation Canada and CNIB Deafblind Community Services make up the CNIB Group. If donors aren't interested in these gifts, they can choose to opt out. If you'd like us to stop sending you gifts through the mail, call us at 1-800-563-2642 and let us know.
In fact, upwards of one million Canadians are currently living with blindness or partial sight, according to CNIB. And that number has the potential to double over the next 25 years as the baby boomer population ages.
