CNIB in the Park

Last updated: May 7, 2020

For more than 60 years, the CNIB Foundation has been proud to call Wascana Park home, and give Regina community members who are blind or partially sighted a welcoming space to learn, grow and reach their goals in life.

  • Since the late 1980s, we've been working to raise the funds needed to rebuild our Wascana Park facility. This would ensure that we, as a charity, could focus our limited resources on delivering more services directly to people with sight loss in our community.
  • In 2013, we launched a capital campaign to fundraise for the construction of a new building in Wascana Park.
  • In 2014, we were pleased when Brandt submitted a proposal to partner with us to rebuild on our existing Wascana site.
  • Soon after, we met with the Wascana Centre Authority and were advised that a tendering process was required in order to start building. This process was completed in the spring of 2015.

At every stage of this process, we've diligently followed the requirements and procedures set out by the relevant authorities – and we will continue to do so into the future.

Where we are today

As of March 13, 2020, CNIB has put on hold any plans to move forward with public sessions at this time, we feel avoiding large gatherings is the prudent and socially responsible thing to do in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. For our latest project update, please click here.

For the last decade, we've been working to find a solution that would allow us to continue delivering services in the area, cost effectively and in a safe, accessible facility. We are proud to move forward with this project in close collaboration with the Provincial Capital Commission, our development partners and the Regina community.

We’re committed to keeping the community engaged and updated about this project as it moves through the remaining stages of the process.
