Upcoming Events for Fall 2019

'Accessibility in the Federal Election'
CNIB Foundation is hosting several in-person training sessions in the lead-up to the Federal election. At these sessions, participants can use and test the accessibility tools that will be provided by Elections Canada at the polls.

We can also help check your local polling location, make sure you’re on the voters list, and help with registering to vote! Make sure you know what to expect, and what you can request on voting day, by participating in this training.
