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.

Our Mission

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.

Our Commitment

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 business on such topics as education, employment, transportation, accessible banking, communication and technologies. These efforts help ensure the needs of people who are blind, deaf-blind and 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.

Connect with AEBC

Be a part of our mainstream movement to leverage accessibility in an inclusive society.

AEBC is looking for people who are blind, deaf-blind or partially sighted and community supporters to join our cause. Together, we can educate Canadians and have one voice with more choice.
