|Description of service(s)||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 CCB 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.
