AEBC has no physical office space, and all volunteers and staff work remotely across Turtle Island. Spanning Lekwungen territory in the West to Algonquin territory in the East, we pay respect to the traditional guardians of this land. As such, all of us depend on traditional Indigenous territories to provide us with physical space, sustenance, safety, and community to work, live, and play. We acknowledge our duty to walk with and alongside reconciliation and decolonization efforts.
As a national organization, we are grateful for the opportunity to live and work here, and we thank all the generations of peoples who have taken care of this land for thousands of years and offer our recognition of the contributions and historic importance of Indigenous peoples.
As we undertake programs and activities relating to our mission and vision, we commit to ensure our efforts support and align with the needs of Indigenous people who are blind, partially sighted or Deafblind.
We encourage our community of members, volunteers and staff to continue their reconciliation journey along with us by visiting the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) at www.nctr.ca.
