Do you want to be a part of a dynamic team of driver guides? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of people who are blind or partially sighted? Do you want to enable our Advocates and Ambassadors to smash barriers to a fully inclusive society, educate others on sight loss and change what it is to be blind today....and have fun doing it? Then the CNIB Driver-Guide role is for you! Our dynamic group of GTA Ambassadors and Advocates who are living with sight loss are often invited to attend events which are not easily accessible by public transit. Even when taking taxis, it is sometimes difficult to get the assistance from the door to the lobby, to navigate an event space and find the correct room. 
 
Drive clients, service staff and/or volunteers who are blind or partially sighted and are travelling on CNIB business.
