National Elections Advocate

We are looking for Canadians who are blind, partially sighted, deafblind, or part of the wider community to join the CNIB Foundation in changing what it means to be blind today. Join us as an advocate!
Our focus over the next few months is ensuring the needs of Canadians with sight loss are on the agenda of all federal political parties and candidates. With a federal election this October 2019, CNIB's advocates will be a powerful voice. Join us to advocate in your community by engaging with federal candidates, voters and community organizations.
