CNIB Receives a Laptop for a Client

By electronic recycling association March 22, 2023

CNIB has been a long term partner of the Electronic Recycling Association. They are a non-profit organization driven to change what it is to be blind today. CNIB deliver innovative programs and powerful advocacy that empower people impacted by blindness to live their dreams and tear down barriers to inclusion. Their work as a blind foundation is powered by a network of volunteers, donors and partners from coast to coast to coast.

The CNIB Foundation, Vision Loss Rehabilitation Canada and CNIB Deafblind Community Services make up the CNIB Group.

Their mission

  • To change what it is to be blind through innovative programs and powerful advocacy that enable Canadians impacted by blindness to live the lives they choose.

Their values

  • Empowerment: They take bold, decisive action to move their mission forward and empower people impacted by blindness to find their courage, raise their voices and realize their dreams.
  • Inclusiveness: They are a community that welcomes all. They embrace one another’s differences and they break down barriers that would exclude anyone from being meaningfully engaged in our world. 
  • Passion: They care deeply about what they do, because CNIB know how much it matters. They pursue their goals relentlessly and don’t give up on anyone, or anything.
  • Innovation: CNIB think big, take risks and embrace change that can accelerate progress and enable success for their clients, volunteers, donors and employees.
  • Collaboration: They believe that to make change happen, CNIB need to bring people, ideas and resources together in new and exciting combinations. Teamwork is fundamental to their success.   
  • Integrity: They treat others the way they want to be treated. CNIB are kind, fair, honest and respectful and maintain open and transparent decision-making in all aspects of their work.

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is excited to announce that with the help of our long-standing donor Shell Canada, we were able to donate a laptop to an individual in Edmonton, AB.  This device will now allow the client to have access to the internet, emails, JAWS (screen reading software), and word processing.
