At CNIB Frontier Accessibility, we value the importance of sharing knowledge, expertise and lived experience when it comes to accessibility. As part of the CNIB Foundation, a non-profit organization founded in 1918, we have the unique knowledge and experience to assist you in achieving your accessibility goals.
In 2019, after celebrating its hundredth anniversary, CNIB Foundation acquired CNIB Frontier Accessibility (then called Frontier Computing) to strengthen its business-to-business relationships, with the goal of making Canada as accessible and inclusive as possible.
One hundred per cent of the revenue raised by CNIB Frontier Accessibility goes towards funding the CNIB Foundation and its charitable mission to provide innovative programs and powerful advocacy that enable Canadians impacted by blindness to live the lives they choose. For this reason, we actively partner with many other pioneering organizations both in Canada and worldwide, including Vision Loss Rehabilitation Canada, the Royal National Institute for the Blind, the American Printing House for the Blind and Vision Australia.
