Providing Dog Guides to Canadians with Disabilities
Canine Vision
The Canine Vision Canada program is the longest standing program. Since 1985, Canine Vision Dog Guides have been enriching the lives of Canadians who are at least 12 years old and are blind or visually impaired.

These Dog Guides are trained to assist their handlers in navigating obstacles typically found on most daily routes, including curbs, steps and crowds.

With the knowledge that they are capable of traveling freely and safely, handlers feel self assured every time they leave their homes with their Dog Guide. The confidence that they gain allows them to pursue education, careers and activities in their communities.

Please Note

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently unable to accept new applicants in this program. While we are still dealing with backlogs and long waitlists for all programs, we are beginning to match, and have successfully graduated teams. With the exception of Facility Support, which is now accepting new applications, waitlists cannot be re-opened yet due to how many clients are already waiting. We hope this changes in the new year and will post an update if any other programs begin accepting new applications. 

We will however continue to take re-applications from our successor clients who have had a previous Dog Guide from us, please e-mail (client-services@dogguides.com) for all needed documentation.
