Abstract:

Given that more than 25% of the Canadian population will be over 65 by 2036, an increase in age-related disabilities may affect the quality of life of this senior population. One of these disabilities is age-related vision loss. This research project is a foresight informed strategic exploration into how Ontario organizations that offer vision loss support might adequately provide for this significant demographic in the future. Through systems thinking and foresight methodologies, this project investigates the current and future environment of the vision rehabilitation service landscape for seniors. Insights generated are used to develop a set of robust strategic actions that may help the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB), Canada’s largest provider of vision loss support, to continue their mission in ensuring a quality of life for seniors with age-related vision loss through remaining resilient under uncertain futures.
