The Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians (AEBC) is a not-for-profit consumer group of blind, partially sighted and deaf-blind persons, parents of blind, partially sighted and deaf-blind children and other interested individuals, who have joined to preserve and enhance the rights of blind, partially sighted and deaf-blind people in Canada.

We are proud to be involved in the myriad of issues affecting blind, deaf-blind and partially sighted Canadians, and to advocate advancement in such areas as employment opportunities, access issues, and equality. Our programs and services include public education and information, advocacy, an annual scholarship program for blind, deaf-blind and partially sighted post-secondary students, a mentorship program linking newly blind children, youth and adults with experienced blind role models, and an email listserve linking blind, deaf-blind and partially sighted Canadians across the nation and around the world. We publish the Canadian Blind Monitor two times a year in audio, print, and braille formats.
