About AEBC

Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians (AEBC) is a national grassroots, peer support organization that is comprised of Canadians who are blind, deafblind or partially sighted and our supporters from the public at large. We work to ensure we have a voice on all matters affecting our participation in Canada’s mainstream society.

Our Mission

To increase awareness of rights and responsibilities, so blind, deafblind and partially sighted individuals can have equal access to the benefits and opportunities of society.

Our Commitment

AEBC is committed to changing public perceptions about who we are, which have historically led to low expectations of our capabilities and have resulted in unacceptably high levels of unemployment.

Who We Are

Our members and chapters across Canada are engaged in the delivery of public awareness and education initiatives as well as consultation with government and businesses on topics such as education, employment, transportation, accessible banking, communication and technologies. These efforts help ensure the needs of people who are blind, deafblind or partially sighted are included when new programs, policies and technologies are being developed.
What We Do

AEBC has long been a leader in levelling the playing field for Canadians who are blind, deafblind or partially sighted. Since 1992, AEBC has participated in working groups and committees at the national, provincial and municipal levels and has advocated for equality in the way organizations and businesses deliver products, programs and services across Canada.

As volunteers, we donate our time, money and effort to ensure that the diverse needs of a skilled community are both recognized and utilized.

One Voice. More Choice.
