Society benefits greatly when all Canadians can participate equally in their workplace and community. Canadians with disabilities face challenges every day which prevent them from participating fully in their community and the economy. The Government of Canada is committed to reducing these accessibility barriers and ensuring that everyone has equal access and opportunity.
The Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities, is encouraging businesses, community organizations and other eligible recipients to apply for funding through the Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) Call for Proposals.
This Call for Proposals includes a Workplace Accessibility and a Community Accessibility funding stream.
The EAF Workplace Accessibility Stream gives eligible businesses and other employers across Canada the opportunity to submit funding proposals for projects that improve accessibility and safety for people with disabilities through the construction, renovation or retrofit of workplaces and the provision of accessible information and communications technologies.
The EAF Community Accessibility Stream provides funding for projects that help improve accessibility and safety through the construction, renovation or retrofit of community facilities and the provision of accessible information and communications technologies so that community programs and services can be accessed by people with disabilities.
