Volunteer as a Vision Mate with CNIB

The CNIB Foundation is a non-profit organization driven to change what it is to be blind today. We deliver innovative programs and powerful advocacy campaigns that empower people impacted by blindness to live their dreams and tear down barriers to inclusion. Our work as a blind foundation is powered by a network of volunteers, donors and partners from coast to coast to coast.

We invite you to make a difference in the life of someone who is blind or partially sighted by volunteering just a couple hours a week. As a Vision Mate, you’ll be matched with someone with vision loss in your area to help them with everyday activities like running errands and going for a walk.

We are currently looking for volunteers in Rossland, Castlegar, Nelson, Kaslo and surrounding areas

To apply contact Rebekah McCallum, Volunteer Coordinator at 250 763-1191 ext. 6180, or email
