The EAF funds organizations, businesses and other eligible recipients to improve accessibility and/or safety for people with disabilities by supporting the capital costs of renovation, construction and/or retrofit activities and the provision of accessible technologies in workplaces and communities across Canada.

 

Objective of the Community Accessibility Stream

To provide funding for small projects that improve accessibility and/or safety for people with disabilities in communities across Canada. These improvements must be addressed through renovation, construction and/or retrofit activities or through the provision of accessible technologies, in community spaces where programs and/or services are offered, or will be offered, to people with disabilities.

 

Objective of the Workplace Accessibility Stream

To provide funding for small projects that improve accessibility and/or safety for people with disabilities in workplaces across Canada.

These improvements must be addressed through renovation, construction and/or retrofit activities or through the provision of accessible technologies, in facilities where people with disabilities work or could work in the future. While proposed projects can address accessibility needs that are specific to one current or future employee, the measures/features to be implemented must be usable/transferable to other current or future employees facing similar accessibility barriers, and must remain with the organization for their use (e.g. an accessible workstation with adjustable countertops and cabinets with pull-out shelves meets the objective, whereas hearing aids would not).
