GTTWest2015@Gmail.comCNIB Ontario partners with BlindSquare and Tim Hortons
<; BlindSquare – which is available through

<; Apple’s App

Store – has taken mainstream GPS navigation to a new level of

accessibility for people who are blind or partially sighted. It now

offers indoor navigation by pairing its technology with iBeacons,

devices that alert users to building features such as restrooms,

seating and counter locations for placing an order. As users move

through the building, the iBeacons work in conjunction with

BlindSquare to ensure important markers are announced. From now until

October 31st, BlindSquare and <; CNIB are

partnering with <; Tim

Hortons to launch a pilot project in the following locations across


* Brantford – 164 Colborne Street West

* Burlington – 434 Plains Road East

* Guelph – 304 Stone Road

* Hamilton – 65 Ottawa Street North & 30 Queenston Road

* London – 352 Wellington Road South

* Mississauga – 100 City Centre Drive (Square One)

* Toronto – 1840 Bayview Avenue & 939 Eglinton Avenue East & 85 Laird Drive

* Scarborough – 1 William Kitchen Road (Kennedy Commons Mall)

* St. Catharines – 212 Welland Avenue

* Waterloo – 94 Bridgeport Road East

As such, customers living with vision loss will be able to test the

iBeacons, sponsored by <;, through

BlindSquare. Throughout the trial, individuals will have access to a

free version of the app,


BlindSquare Event, within 250 kilometres of Toronto. Customers who are

blind or partially sighted are encouraged to

<; complete a survey to provide

valuable feedback. Survey respondents have an opportunity to have

their name entered into a weekly draw for one of five pairs of
