Montreal Chapter Comedy Night!: March 4, 2011

Friday, February 11, 2011

On Friday, March 4th, 2011, the Greater Montreal Chapter of the Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians (AEBC), in cooperation with Ernie Butler's Comedy Nest, is hosting a comedy night in support of blind, deaf-blind and partially sighted Canadians. In a 2006 survey conducted by Statistics Canada, more than 800,000 Canadians reported having a "seeing limitation," and almost 90,000 of those reported being legally blind.

The AEBC, originally founded in 1992, helps blind Canadians by:

  • supporting students with scholarship awards each year;
  • publishing a biannual magazine on blindness issues (the Canadian Blind Monitor) in print, braille, and electronic formats that reaches more than 4,500 subscribers;
  • providing a network of contacts across the country, allowing those adjusting to loss of vision with a wealth of resources, tips, and peer support;
  • working with schools, employers, and government to help those who are blind and partially sighted engage in all aspects of Canadian society;
  • and more!

For more information on the AEBC and its activities, visit us at, or call us at 1-800-561-4774.
