How to Help GDUC
Guide dog teams across Canada need your help! Your gift provides needed medical services to guide dogs nationwide, allows us to subsidize our annual conferences, increases peer support opportunities for guide dog handlers, facilitates public education programs, and enables advocacy initiatives throughout the country. With your help, GDUC can continue to improve the lives of guide dogs and their handlers!
Our 2020 Financial Statements are available to give you an idea of how much money we bring in, and what it costs to operate the organization on an annual basis.
