Support people who are blind or partially sighted in Canada and around the world.
An estimated 1.5 million Canadians live with vision loss. That’s 1.5 million people navigating city streets, workplaces, daily life, and the challenges associated with blindness. An estimated 5.5 million more Canadians live with a condition which could cause loss of vision.1
You can improve the lives of people who are blind or partially sighted in Canada and around the world. Your gift to the Removing Barriers for People with Visual Impairments Fund helps people living with blindness access critical support services including access to braille resources, guide dogs, and more. You will also support research to help prevent vision loss and provide treatment for those in need.
Donate today to help change lives and achieve wide-reaching effects. Your donation will be pooled with donations from others to make an even greater impact and you will receive an official charitable tax receipt to qualify for tax credits. Give today!
