Toronto Visionaries chapter of the Canadian Council of the Blind

Welcome to the CCB Toronto Visionaries

Notice: The CCB Toronto Visionaries will follow all Toronto Public Health recommendations for COVID-19. As restrictions lift, protocols may vary according to venue requirements. Please see our Events & Activities calendar and event bulletins for more information.

The CCB Toronto Visionaries is a local chapter of the Canadian Council of the Blind (CCB), a national registered charity. Chartered as a CCB chapter in 2013, the CCB Toronto Visionaries is dedicated to breaking the isolation that so often accompanies vision loss, encouraging members to be inspired by their peers, to building supportive social networks through sharing information and engaging in a wide range of social and recreational activities.

Becoming a CCB member connects you to others in your community who are living with vision loss, and to thousands of vision-impaired Canadians in CCB chapters throughout Ontario and across Canada.

Our meetings

Monthly meetings are an opportunity to spend some social time with peers. At many of our meetings, guest speakers are invited to talk on a wide range of fun and interesting topics. Getting together allows us to share information, learn something new, and find supportive new social connections, breaking the isolation that so often accompanies vision loss.

Our Get Together with Technology (GTT Toronto) adaptive-technology user group hosts monthly presentations and provides a forum for our members to share information on the technological tools that can enable independence, build confidence and open up the world for those with vision loss.
