Canadian Council of the Blind (CCB)
The main objectives of the CCB are to give people who are blind or vision impaired a voice in their own affairs (through the consumer advocacy movement) and to provide rehabilitation through peer support and social and recreational activities.
The objectives of the Council are threefold:
- To promote the well-being of individuals who are blind or vision impaired through higher education, profitable employment and social association, and to create a closer relationship between blind and sighted friends.
- To organize a nation-wide organization of people who are blind and vision impaired and groups of blind persons throughout Canada.
- To promote measures for the conservation of sight and the prevention of blindness.
