BALANCE for Blind Adults is an Employer of Choice for persons who are blind or partially sighted. One third of our employees are blind or have low vision and have been vision rehabilitation service users themselves. The level of employment among blind persons in Canada is disgraceful. Only about 35% have jobs, so we at BALANCE are proud of the fact that we are setting an example to other employers in the city of Toronto and in Canada. We seek out experienced and knowledgeable people and we believe that lived experience helps to create a dynamic, caring and empathetic learning environment. At BALANCE, we also provide a supportive management approach which permits growth and development in the workplace. We believe that a caring workplace builds a strong staff team, which in turn improves programs and services and benefits our clients.
