Welcome to Braille Literacy Canada!

Braille Literacy Canada (BLC) is a not-for-profit corporation committed to braille promotion and the right of braille users to equal access to printed information. For many Canadians who are blind or visually impaired, braille is the key to literacy and independence. Braille Literacy Canada (BLC) is an organization of braille users, transcribers and producers, as well as educators and parents of blind children. We believe in equal access to information. If it’s available in print it should be available in braille. We also believe that all those who want or need to know braille should have the opportunity to learn it.
