VIRN Believes In Working Together

Consumer Access Group (CAG)

VIRN has been part of the Consumer Access Group (CAG) since it began. This group’s purpose is to: bring together national, provincial, and local organizations in order to develop position statements on issues important to Canadians with all levels of vision impairment; provide the Canadian public, service providers, and governments a consistent view on issues identified by CAG; coordinate public education efforts, pool resources, and present a united stance to effect change.
