CNIB Ontario West Leadership

Robert Gaunt.jpgRob Gaunt was recruited to the role of Executive Director, Ontario West Region in September 2016. Prior to returning to his home region of Ontario West, for the previous three years, Rob had been serving as Regional Manager, Northwestern Ontario & Timmins for CNIB. In 1999, Rob had relocated to Thunder Bay after graduating from the University of Guelph, and retiring from an athletics background. Throughout his time in the North Region, Rob acquired 16 years of experience in public education, health promotion, and human, financial, facilities and program management, working with 3 different National level organizations, including the Canadian Diabetes Association, the Canadian Cancer Society, the Northern Regional Hospital, and CNIB.

Rob has gained extensive experience in advocacy and accessibility through his contributions to a variety of committees and organizations including the University of Guelph Sport and Recreation Equality on Campus program, the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre Accessibility Advisory Team, CNIB's Ontario Advisory Board and Advocacy Board, the Accessibility Directorate of Ontario (ADO) Transportation Standards Development Committee (SDC), recent appointment to the ADO Information and Communications SDC, and through a wide range of municipal and grass-roots community initiatives.
