Providing Dog Guides to Canadians with Disabilities

COVID-19 - Temporarily not accepting new applications

Not being able to train new teams has led to a large backlog in clients on our waiting list for all 7 programs, and significantly increased the associated wait times. Sadly, we've had to temporarily not accept any new applications for our Dog Guides in all the programs.

We will continue to take reapplications from our successor clients who have had a Dog Guide from us.

We will reopen our application process for new applicants as soon as possible.
