Rob Sleath is a passionate advocate for those living with vision loss and particularly to providing them with the same rights and access to information as the sighted. Rob has worked at the local, provincial and national levels of CNIB and has truly made a difference, especially in transportation and consumer services. For example, Skytrain improvements for sight-impaired users and free access to directory assistance are some of Rob’s initiatives. As his nominator writes, ‘Rob has a clear vision of building a world where the more than 17,000 British Columbians living with vision loss can achieve full independence’.
BC Achievement is an independent foundation established in 2003 that honours excellence and inspires achievement in British Columbia.
