We hope you will reach out to our Community Partners and leverage their important contributions to the D & I community.

CAMSC

CAMSCThe Canadian Aboriginal and Minority Supplier Council (CAMSC) facilitates linkages between corporate Canada and certified Aboriginal and minority-owned suppliers across Canada – an initiative known as “supplier diversity.”

CAMSC corporate members, such as Accenture, Blackberry, Chrysler, Cisco, HP, IBM, Merck, PepsiCo, RBC, TELUS and many others, are embracing an inclusive and diverse supply chain to provide equality of opportunity to qualified suppliers, to access the innovation and competitiveness that diverse suppliers may offer, and because corporations realize that diverse supplier businesses are important to the economic prosperity of the communities that they do business in.

Global Learning has partnered with CAMSC to offer major corporations a valuable information tool that enables companies to quantify their current level of supply chain inclusiveness, obtain reportable data, and thereby build a supplier diversity program based on quantifiable and realistic goals.

CNIB

CNIBCNIB is a registered charity, passionately providing community-based support, knowledge, and a national voice to ensure Canadians who are blind or partially sighted have the confidence, skills, and opportunities to fully participate in life.

To do that, our dedicated specialists work with people of all ages in their own homes, communities, or local CNIB offices – providing emotional support and personalized rehabilitation services in everyday skills like cooking and walking safely with a white cane. We also offer access to a range of innovative consumer products that can make life with vision loss easier, as well as the CNIB Library, Canada’s largest collection of materials in alternative formats like braille and audio.

In addition to our community-based services, we also work hand-in-hand with Canadians who are blind or partially sighted to advocate for a barrier-free society, and we strive to eliminate avoidable sight loss with world-class research and by promoting the importance of vision health through public education.

Since our founding in 1918, CNIB has grown to become the primary resource for Canadians who are blind or partially sighted, with offices in communities across the country. We’re proud to help thousands of Canadians see beyond vision loss every single day.

CNIB receives less than 35 per cent of its total funding from government sources, so we rely on public donations to help us be there for all those who need our services. To make a donation or learn more, visit www.cnib.ca or call the toll-free CNIB Helpline at 1-800-563-2642.
