   About the Position

Impact Statement
We work together as a community of peers that acts to improve the individual and community quality of life of people who are blind, deaf-blind or living with low vision.

Volunteers are needed to assist individuals with visual impairments who participate in different events throughout the year including our weekly bowling or curling. Participants may be required to assist clients who have mobility issues or who use service animals.

Safety and security are main issues during outings plus any help a member may require. Members of CCB, during these events, appreciate assistance with navigating their meal, mobility barriers, socializing etc. Volunteers require patience and empathy.
