A Century of Change – Inspired by Braille
 
Date: Friday, October 27 and Saturday October 28, 2017
 
Location: CNIB Centre, 1929 Bayview Ave., Toronto, Ontario, M4G 3E8, CANADA
 
CNIB has been hosting its braille conference for more than 40 years. The first conference was a half-day event for Toronto braille volunteers that discussed braille best practice and has grown over the years to be a gathering of people from the vision loss, technology and braille communities covering braille advancements, education and teaching tools.
 
This year’s conference will have a theme focused on a Century of Change inspired by braille, as CNIB celebrates its 100th year.
 
Guests will hear session presentations from independent living skills specialists, educators, volunteer braille transcribers, and CELA (Centre for Equitable Library Access.)
