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

We are proud to be involved in the myriad of issues affecting persons with limited vision, 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 vision-impaired role models, and an email list linking blind Canadians across the nation. We publish the Canadian Blind Monitor (CBM) once a year in audio, braille and electronic formats.

Call toll free or visit our accessible website for more information and to learn how you can support us in our important work.
