Toronto Visionaries chapter of the Canadian Council of the Blind

Notice: COVID-19 and the reintroduction of in-person activities

With the lifting of many of the Province's public health restrictions imposed by COVID, the CCB Toronto Visionaries is gradually reintroducing a select number of in-person social and recreational activities. We will continue to comply with all public health directives to ensure the safety of our members and volunteers. These may include confirmation of vaccination status, masking, physical distancing, or other recommendations issued from time to time by the Government of Ontario or Toronto Public Health.

Events and activities

Every year, the CCB Toronto Visionaries presents a few big events, like our Spring concert, our Walk-a-thon and Beach BBQ, our bus trip, and the WCW Experience Expo. We also offer many smaller activities throughout the year, including local historical tours, described walks, meals out at local restaurants, our regular monthly meetings, and much more!
