Career connections for vision impaired employees in Canada

There’s a free service being offered by the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) and the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) called CareerConnect Canada. It aims to provide “a free resource for Canadians who are blind or partially sighted to connect, network and build their careers.”

There is a webpage for it on the CNIB website where you can read about it. The service emphasizes mentoring (being a mentor and/or finding a mentor) and provides instructions and contact information to get you started. There’s some good info about industries that hire vision-impaired employees, as well as some good resource links.

Here’s the URL for the page on the CNIB website if you want to read more about it:

Here’s the URL for the page on the AFB website, too–although I think it’s likely focussed on career building in the US:
