Curling action at an indoor ice rink. A group of players, some wearing red and white jackets, are focused on guiding a yellow curling stone across the ice. One man in the foreground is crouched low, intensely watching the stone's path, while two others sweep with brooms to influence the stone's trajectory. In the background, there's a scoreboard and other participants observing the game. Advertisements for 'Westland Insurance' can be seen on the rink wall.

Seeking Vision Mate Volunteers in the Greater Victoria Region

Make a difference in the lives of blind or partially sighted people in your community!
The Vision Mate program matches people who are blind or partially sighted with sighted volunteers who provide companionship and one-on-one assistance with everyday tasks and errands. Activities you and your match do together are based on your needs and interests! Vision Mate volunteers can assist individuals with various activities, including errands, going for walks, labelling and organizing household items, reading, or fun outings and recreational activities.
Matches are made with someone who lives close to your home, school or work. Visits are typically one or two hours a week in the person’s home or another suitable place at a mutually convenient time.
Over time, the Vision Mate relationship often transitions to friendship. That’s why age, gender, interests, and travel distance play a role in making the match. We aim to match people for a minimum of six months, though there is no maximum time for a match to continue – ideally, it will continue for years to come.
We are looking for volunteers with the following skills and attributes:
•      Trustworthy, patient, empathetic and friendly
•      Reliable, organized, and able to work with minimal supervision.
•      Excellent communication skills
CNIB provides orientation about CNIB, the people we help, vision loss, and volunteering at CNIB, as well as training specific to the position. We ask for a minimum six-month commitment to the program. A background check including a Clear Police Record Check and a Vulnerable Sector Check is required. Must be 18 or older.
For more information about the program or about volunteering with CNIB, please contact Ben Finkelberg – Program Lead, Vision Mate and Volunteer Operations, at 250-410-2517 or by email at [email protected].
