The CNIB believes everyone who would like to have a guide dog should have that opportunity. At CNIB Guide Dogs, they raise, train and match dogs with Canadians who are blind or partially sighted. They also raise their voices to ensure people with sight loss have opportunities to live, work and play without barriers.
People with sight loss often say having a guide dog is a transformational experience. Being part of a guide dog team provides mobility, safety and confidence, leading to increased independence and a sense of connection with the world. We believe everyone who would like to have a guide dog should have that opportunity.
