White Cane Week activities

In February each year, the CCB celebrates White Cane Week, a public awareness campaign which broadens the understanding of vision loss and its impact on Canadians across the country. Visit the CCB national website for a list of events, information forums, and celebrations across the country.

2018 WCW Experience Expo

AMI logoAs part of White Cane Week public awareness and outreach, the CCB Toronto Visionaries Chapter of the Canadian Council of the Blind, with the generous support of Accessible Media Incorporated (AMI), will host an interactive, hands-on exhibition featuring exhibitors, products and services covering every aspect of the experience of living with vision loss.

From new adaptive technologies to exploring recreation and leisure activities, from expressing yourself through tactile art to navigating with your cell phone, the Experience Expo has something for everyone to see, hear, touch, and experience! And, since many of the exhibits will be staffed by people living with vision loss, visitors can learn directly from those who are bringing their lived experience to the table.

Celebrate with us!

Because one of the experiences of living with vision loss is celebrating our achievements, the Experience Expo will be followed by a community social, a chance for everyone to enjoy some great food, fantastic music, a cash bar and door prizes!

So join us and experience the passion, creativity and wide range of activities, tools and tips for all your senses!

Please RSVP for the Social by calling the Voice Mail Line at 416-760-2163 or by email at ccbtorontovisionaries@gmail.com.

Contact us for more information or to register as an exhibitor.

This year, White Cane Week is celebrated February 4-10, 2018.

You can see footage from last year's event, on AMI's website AMI Inside: CCB Conference - WCW Rec & Leisure (season 3, episode 13, March 10, 2017).
