BlindSquare Event App Orientation

The City of St. John’s, in partnership with CNIB, is hosting a free orientation session for people interested in learning how to use the BlindSquare Event App, which is being piloted at the Downtown Pedestrian Mall this summer. The orientation is on Tue. July 26 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the Foran Greene Room, fourth floor, City Hall.

During the session, CNIB staff will review:
