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!
