The Enabling Accessibility Fund is a federal Grants and Contributions program that supports community-based projects across Canada that improve accessibility, remove barriers, and enable Canadians with disabilities to participate in and contribute to their communities.
Eligible recipients include:
- Not-for-profit organizations;
- Small municipalities (with a population under 250,000 as per census data);
- Small private-sector organizations (fewer than 50 employees and under $5 million in gross revenue per year);
- Colleges and universities;
- Territorial governments; and
- Aboriginal governments.
From installing automated door openers, constructing a universally designed office or retrofitting a washroom with an accessible toilet, grab bars and taps, the Enabling Accessibility Fund works to enable Canadians with disabilities to participate in their community and the economy.
Since its creation in 2007, the program has funded over 2,200 projects across the country and has improved accessibility for thousands of Canadians.
The program includes the following streams:
- Workplace Accessibility
- Community Accessibility
