Guide Dog Mobility Instructors (GDMI) and Guide Dog Trainers (GDT) - Ontario, Canada

If you are a qualified Guide Dog Mobility Instructor or Guide Dog Trainer with three or more years post-qualification experience, and you have accreditation from an International Guide Dog Federation organization, you may be just the person we are looking for to join our team.

In April 2017, CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind) was very excited to launch its newest program - CNIB Guide Dogs.  We are the only organization in Canada solely dedicated to providing Guide Dogs for Canadians who are blind or partially sighted.  The goal of CNIB Guide Dogs is to expand the choices and opportunities available to those Canadians wishing to acquire a guide dog to enhance their mobility and independence. As well this year, CNIB is celebrating a proud history spanning 100 years of providing services.

Since our launch, we have been concentrating on the necessary development of the program, particularly our puppy raising schemes, and we are now about to bring our first dogs in for their formal guide dog training. Our team is evolving, and we are very excited with expected growth and development to provide guide dog mobility services from coast to coast in the beautiful country of Canada. The role will be varied and interesting and you would be working with a friendly, job loving and dedicated group of people who are enthusiastic to be involved with this new and ambitious program. There will be opportunities for GDMIs and GDTs to travel within the vast country of Canada while providing our services to clients.
