A volunteer is a person who believes that people can make a difference and is willing to prove it. Volunteerism is not real work unless you would rather be doing something else. By caring and contributing to change, volunteers decrease suffering and disparity while they gain skills, self-esteem and change their lives. People work to improve the lives of their neighbours and in return enhance their own.

Volunteers don’t work for money. They work for less tangible but equally important forms of remuneration such as satisfaction, appreciation and the opportunity to build skills.

Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind relies greatly on volunteers to add to the success of our organization. We require volunteers in all geographical areas of the country.  If you are interested in volunteering for Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind, please complete the volunteer application (PDF document) and mail it to our National Office & Training Centre in Manotick, Ontario. We will then forward it to the Chapter or Volunteer Coordinator in your area.

If you are unable to open the application form, please contact
