About us

Canadian Blind Ablesail (CBA) is a registered Canadian Not for Profit Corporation. We are recognized by Sail Canada and Ontario Sailing as an Ablesail program for the blind.

CBA’s goal is to broaden the inclusion of blind and vision impaired people within the sailing community.

Our mission is to enable partnerships among blind and sighted sailors through the sport of recreational sailing.

Our programs empower blind and vision impaired Canadians to develop independence and critical life skills. With a focus on teamwork, stewardship and engagement, Canadian Blind Ablesail provides the foundation to allow a blind person to chart their own course.

Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, our relationships with like minded organizations and individuals allows CBA to provide support for Canadians from coast to coast to coast.
