À propos de cet organisme

Braille Literacy Canada / Littératie braille Canada, founded in 1990 as the Canadian Braille Authority, is a federally incorporated not-for-profit charitable organization dedicated to the promotion of braille as the primary medium of literacy for those who are blind or visually impaired. BLC is recognized by the International Council on English Braille as the authority for the development, adoption, and establishment of standards relating to braille in Canada. With a membership comprised of both organizations and individuals including educators, braille transcribers, braille producers, parents of braille users and braille users themselves, BLC represents a broad cross-section of those working with or impacted by braille and is lead by a volunteer board of directors elected by the BLC membership.
