Main Content

David Onley joins former CNIB president Jim Sanders, former CNIB Board Chair Al Jameson, and other CNIB staff for an event at our Lake Joe camp in Muskoka, Ontario.

CNIB is deeply saddened by the passing of David Onley, former Ontario Lieutenant Governor, journalist, and disability advocate. 

David was an unwavering advocate and lifelong champion of accessibility and inclusion. His contributions to accessibility and to Canada’s community of people living with disabilities were countless.

We at CNIB are grateful to have worked in collaboration with David for many years as he passionately championed the rights of people living with disabilities not only in Ontario, but across the country. 
May his legacy inspire others to continue to work together to create a more accessible society – where everyone can live, play, and work without barriers. We send our deepest condolences to his family as we mourn the loss of this remarkable trailblazer.
