You are invited to the CCB’s GTT Zoom meetings where we focus in on the technology needs and concerns of Canadians who are blind or low vision. The calls will take place over the accessible Zoom Conference system, which will allow participants to dial in using their landline phones, smart phones or computers. You will find the Zoom link and phone numbers below the meeting listings. Please pay special attention to the “(note)” notation after some of the meeting listings. Different zoom platforms are used for different meetings and some require preregistration.

CCB-GTT METRO VANCOUVER MEETINGS
We are in the process of revamping our program in the Metro Vancouver area. In doing so we will be having a meeting to invite participants input later this month. There will be no CCB-GTT VCC or CCB-GTT NEW WEST meetings this month, and any sort of Face to Face meetings have been suspended for the balance of the calendar year, if not beyond. The CCB-GTT NORTH VANCOUVER program has been suspended indefinitely, with the hope that participants from there can join us at one of the other meetings and/or the online Zoom calls.
