White Cane Week 2023 in Toronto

During White Cane Week, the CCB Toronto Visionaries Chapter is reaching out to a broader general public by setting up information tables in local shopping malls across the GTA, to talk with people about vision loss and the supports and services available to those living with seeing disabilities in Toronto. Contact us for a list of locations and dates.

2023 Visionaries Vision Health Month forum

The Visionaries Forum is an interactive panel discussion on a topic of vital interest to all those living with vision loss. Past topics have included the Assistive Devices Program, a patient's rights to full disclosure of all treatment options, and Independence through Gainful Employment.

This year, the ADP Reform Working Group will present progress on bringing the Ontario Ministry of Health's Assistive Devices Program up to date.
