GTT Toronto: Thanks to all for Toronto’s 4th White Cane Week ‘Experience’ Expo, held on February 2, 2019

Hey GTT Toronto!

—-Message from Ian White, President, CCB Toronto Visionaries Chapter, Canadian Council of the Blind—-

Once again, thank you for making our 4th year hosting the WCW ‘Experience’ Expo our best year yet. Following on from the discussion at the Assistive Technology Forum, we have one more very important thing to do.


As you know, the employment rate of Canadians who are blind, partially-sighted, and deaf-blind is very low, and the cost of assistive and accessible technology is very high. Given these facts, the CCB is endeavouring to better understand your thoughts, experiences, and goals in these matters so that we may advocate for you more effectively. We want to work with you towards a future with a higher employment rate for those with vision loss as well as increased accessibility and independence.


Our goal is to eliminate or minimize the barriers limiting those with vision loss from acquiring the education of their choice and from entering and thriving in today’s workforce. So help us help you and complete the brief survey below!


Tell us about your circumstances. Where you are and where do you want to go? We want to help you get there.


Click here to complete the survey!


Please invest the 8 to 10 minutes it will take to complete the above survey. If you can, do it today  or if not, then no later than Friday March 15, 2019.

Once you’ve submitted your survey, please pass the survey link along to as many others living with vision loss as possible. The more survey respondents we get, the better we’ll be able to understand the present status of Canadians with vision loss and to act accordingly.

Thank you in advance for your participation.

All the best,


Ian White
