Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians (AEBC) is a national grassroots, peer support organization that comprises Canadians who are blind, deaf-blind 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.
To increase awareness of rights and responsibilities, so blind, deaf-blind and partially sighted individuals can have equal access to the benefits and opportunities of society.
AEBC is committed to changing public perceptions about who we are, which have historically lead to low expectations of our capabilities and have resulted in unacceptable 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, deaf-blind 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, deaf-blind 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.
