The Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) has sought to improve the lives of generations of blind Canadians. Established in 1918, this philanthropic organisation has guided blind people out of a time of poverty and abuse, bringing them the same rights and freedoms as all Canadians. This book explores the history of the CNIB -- from the men who crafted its charter to the people who have made it so successful. Millions of Canadians have been touched by the services it provides or by its message of hope. The CNIB has left a legacy in Canada's legislative, judicial, and cultural fabric, and it is a history that must be told.
