City of Peterborough
With the support of the City of Peterborough in suppling the Community Grant Project for small organizasions, we have been able to receive a grant each year to help with our social activities.
Canadian National Institute of the Blind
With support from the CNIB we have developed a partnership within our peer groups where the CCB Peterboroguh Chapter offers additional peer support beyond the CNIB programs. The CNIB/VLR (Vision Loss Rehabilitation) are community based services that empower Canadians who are blind or partially sighted, not just to live independently - but to see beyond vision loss.

The CPD exists to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities but promoting equality, opportunity, and inclusion in the Peterborough Region so that everyone can contribute and thrive.

TandemEyes is a cycling club that facilitates individuals with partial or total vision loss in their pursuit of cycling. We provide tandem bikes, in which the person with vision loss works with a captain to ride their way along trails and streets. This desire to share helps all our members stay happy and healthy in the great outdoors.
