Weekly Open Chat Zoom Conference Call
You’re invited to the CCB’s Open Chat Zoom Conference call meeting, where we will focus on the needs of Canadians who are blind or partially sighted as we all adjust to the “Social Distancing” that will keep us safe from COVID-19. This call will be 90-minutes in duration and will take place during the day at 1:00 PM Eastern Time every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The call will take place over the accessible Zoom Conference system, which will allow participants to dial in using their landline phones, smart phones or computers.

Brian Bibeault, Volunteer Coordinator:
The CCB was founded in 1944 by a coalition of blind war veterans, schools of the blind and local chapters to create a national self-governing organization. The CCB was incorporated by Letters Patent on May 10, 1950 and is a registered charity under the provisions of the Income Tax Act (Canada).
The purpose of the CCB is to give people with vision loss a distinctive and unique perspective before governments. CCB deals with the ongoing effects of vision loss by encouraging active living and rehabilitation through peer support and social and recreational activities.
CCB promotes measures to conserve sight, create a close relationship with the sighted community and provide employment opportunities.
The CCB recognizes that vision loss has no boundaries with respect to gender, income, ethnicity, culture, other disabilities or age.
The CCB understands in many instances vision loss is preventable and sometimes is symptomatic of other health issues. For the 21st century, the CCB is committed to an integrated proactive health approach for early detection to improve the quality of life for all Canadians.
As the largest membership organization of the blind and partially sighted in Canada the CCB is the “Voice of the Blind™”.
