Now available: Support AEBC by purchasing gift cards through FundScrip!

Help us raise money and join our gift card fundraiser!

FundScrip is an innovative program that lets you earn cash rebates for the Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians based on things you buy everyday like groceries, gas and other household items.

Every month you spend hundreds of dollars for things like food, gas, clothing, pharmacy, restaurants, electronics, home renovations, department stores, and so on. All you have to do is pay for some or all of your purchases using gift cards bought at face value from FundScrip participating retailers and a percentage of every gift card purchased is contributed to AEBC's fundraising efforts. So instead of paying with cash or a debit card, you use a gift card that you purchased through our group.

Participate in Giving Tuesday! Help AEBC reach our goals!

Once again, AEBC is participating in the Giving Tuesday fundraising campaign. We urge you to take some of the money you saved on Black Friday or Cyber Monday and use it to support AEBC on December 3, 2019, the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, so that our organization can make a difference in the lives of blind, deafblind and partially sighted Canadians.

You can donate at our Giving Tuesday Page. If you have already made a contribution, we thank you!

Join a Canada-wide Network to advance the CRPD!

OP LAB: LEARNING, SHARING, ACTIONING!
Did you know? Canada recently agreed to follow the Optional Protocol (OP) to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
What does this mean? The CRPD is an international law aimed at promoting, protecting and ensuring human rights and fundamental freedoms for persons with disabilities. The Optional Protocol allows people in Canada to make a complaint to the United Nations, in some situations when they believe their rights under the CRPD have been violated.
The OP LAB offers you the opportunity to learn more about the Optional Protocol and be part of a Canada-wide network engaged in acting for the implementation of the CRPD!
