Government of Canada Supports Accessibility for all Canadians

Organizations can now apply for funding for projects that will create or enhance accessibility for people with disabilities through the Government of Canada’s Enabling Accessibility Fund.

Organizations are encouraged to apply for contribution funding of $500,000 to $3 million through a call for proposals for mid-sized projects. These projects may include retrofits, renovations or new construction of facilities within Canada that help organizations better serve people with disabilities.

Through the Enabling Accessibility Fund, the Government of Canada is improving access to facilities, activities and services and enabling all Canadians to participate fully in society.

Organizations can submit proposals until January 13, 2011, under the Fund’s Mid-sized Projects component.
