Oct 6, 2022 | Business Resources

Persons with disabilities must be able to access spaces, communities, and workplaces that are barrier-free and built to include everyone. For this reason, the Government of Canada continues to invest in programs that prioritize disability inclusion, increasing accessibility and the full participation of persons with disabilities.

The Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) provides funding for projects that make communities and workplaces more accessible for persons with disabilities. EAF creates more opportunities for persons with disabilities to:

  • take part in community activities, programs and services
  • access employment

This Call for Proposals (CFP) will provide up to $57,950,000 in funding in fiscal year 2022 to 2023 to support a minimum of 580 accessibility projects, and up to $6,500,000 to support a minimum of 65 Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) projects.

The Department will prioritize funding to projects that help improve accessibility and safety for persons with disabilities in:

  • shelters, for those experiencing violence and/or gender-based violence
  • workplaces where persons with disabilities work or could work in the future
  • Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) centres
  • Indigenous projects to improve accessibility in Indigenous organizations

Eligible organizations can only submit 1 application to this CFP and can apply for up to $100,000 for:

  • small construction, renovation or retrofit of existing spaces to improve accessibility
  • accessible Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)
