Toronto Visionaries chapter of the Canadian Council of the Blind

NOTICE: ALL REGULAR MEETINGS SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO COVID19 CLOSURES

Until the current state of emergency and general restrictions are lifted, the CCB Toronto Visionaries will not be holding any of its regularly scheduled, face-to-face meetings or activities. A small number of our meetings will go ahead as Zoom Conference Calls only. See the schedule below for details.

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!
