Home Accommodations for Kids with Sight Impairments

Parents/Guardians experiences accessing Rental Housing Accommodations for Ontarian Children with Sight Impairments


This project is funded by the Law Foundation of Ontario Small Responsive Grant. This project seeks to create toolkits to assist Ontario parents/guardians of children with sight impairments and CNIB rehabiliation staff assisting them, to successfully obtain individualized accessible home accommodations required to improve their mobility and safety in rental units. You have been identified by CNIB rehabilitation staff as a person who is a parent/guardian of a sight impaired child who lives in a rental unit in Northern Ontario.
