CNIB office moves to New Westminster

The Vancouver office for the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) has been at 5055 Joyce Street since the 1990s and recently moved to New Westminster due to rezoning and construction by Joyce-Collingwood Station.

During its move, all its programs went from in-person to online and its volunteers have completed more than 10,000 check-in calls with members with vision loss or blindness. Isolation is the biggest issue its members currently face.
