The Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians (AEBC) is a national charitable organization of primarily blind, deafblind or partially sighted members. We are committed to increasing awareness of our rights, to ensure that we can equally participate in all aspects of society. AEBC is a leader in leveling the playing field for our community. Since 1992, AEBC has participated in working groups and committees at the national, provincial and municipal levels. AEBC advocates for accessibility, equality and the elimination of barriers in how organizations and businesses deliver products, programs and services across Canada.
Our Priorities
Provide training and workshops for employers to increase employment opportunities.
Ensure accessible services are available to our community by participating in project initiatives from conception to completion with all levels of government, including the CTA, CHRC and CRTC.

Our project work includes:
the Ottawa LRT, implementation of government-issued photo ID in Ontario/Quebec, and moving the Accessible Canada Act through parliament and beyond.

Submit policy briefs to support governmental and non-governmental decision-making in all applicable areas.

Award annual scholarships to blind, deafblind and partially sighted students studying in fields such as the arts, medicine and computer science.

Provide peer and advocacy support to members, through our BC Affiliate and chapters across Canada.

Develop and promote public education projects to dispel common myths and misconceptions and foster positive attitudes within the general public by sharing our lived experience.
