Aeroplan flight availability

I feel like an idiot because I must be missing something really simple here, but how do I book domestic flights with Aeroplan points? I search for flights while logged in to aeroplan.com, but am then dumped to aircanada.com which shows me cash fares. How do I find out whether a flight can be booked with aeroplan points?

I just tried it. It works differently now. After I hit search, the original tab changed to Air Canada search result and it open another tab for the Aeroplan search result.
BTW, I am using Chrome on Win10.
AC owns AP now. AC may want to up sell AC cash tickets just in case AP flight is not convenience.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.
Public Mobile $36 5GB, $12 250MB, 2x $6 50min/50text, Fido $5 4GB data only plan with a free tablet,
Zoomer $36 loyalty 4GB plan, $0 FPL home phone. Have a better and better day!

do you have "compare flights to aircanada.com checked?"
for me it opens a new tab to aircanada.com because of that.... but the actually aeroplan site shows you its like 25,000 miles etc.

and that box is always there even if looking at flights where AC doesn't even fly . so stupid.
