The Canadian Council of the Blind (CCB) is a membership-based not-for-profit organization that brings together Canadians who are blind, deaf-blind or living with vision loss through chapters within their own local communities to share common interests and social activities.
CCB works to improve the quality of life for persons with vision loss through awareness, peer mentoring, socializing, sports, advocacy, health promotion and illness prevention.
Members participate as volunteers in the peer support, sports and recreation, book clubs, awareness, and educational activities of the CCB. Members manage the affairs of their own local chapters consistent with the National Canadian Council of the Blind and may be elected to executive functions locally, provincially and/or nationally. They serve on various committees at these levels as well as participating in many other community groups.
CCB chapter members may involve themselves at their own comfort level and may choose to learn new skills or sports, become involved in accessibility awareness, and educational activities or simply enjoy the company of others.
