I Want to Connect with Talent: Come to Work
About Come to Work
The CNIB Foundation's Come to Work program connects job seekers who are blind or partially sighted with employers who want to discover the full potential of Canada's talent.
Connect with Talent in Your Community
If you're an employer looking to connect with talent in for full-time, part-time and contract work, and internships/returnships, here you'll find more information about how you can recruit talent with the Come to Work program.
Meet our Partners
Come to Work partners are committed to engaging talent with different perspectives to create a culture of collaboration and innovation.
Meet the Talent Pool
Come to Work introduces employers to an innovative talent pool of Canadians who are blind or partially sighted and provides job seekers with work experience. Meet some members of the Come to Work talent pool!
Become a Mentor
Mentoring enhances professional portfolios, changes lives and advances careers. Whether you're a seasoned professional or in the early stages of your career, mentorship exposes both parties to new perspectives, ideas and reciprocal learning relationships.
Creating a Culture of Accessibility & Inclusion
Think of accessibility as more of a philosophy instead of a set of standards. While resources are available to help guide you to ensure that your company is accessible, how do you ensure that you're providing a universal experience for all consumers?
Engaging Talent with Sight Loss
With the help of a few accommodations and technologies, people who are blind or partially sighted work 100 per cent independently. The cost of hiring an employee who is blind is generally about the same as the cost of hiring a person who is sighted.
Phone it Forward
Many people don’t realize the tremendous impact modern smartphones have in the lives of people who are blind or partially sighted. CNIB Foundation’s Phone It Forward program gives Canadians a unique opportunity to donate their modern smartphones, receive a tax receipt for fair market value, and empower people who are blind in the process.
