The Government of Canada funding opportunity deadline is approaching. Until July 26, 2016, the Government of Canada’s Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) businesses can receive up to $50,000 to help improve accessibility in a facility or venue. Please submit applications by next week.
If you are a business with less than 100 employees or a community-based employer, you may be eligible for funding from the Workplace Accessibility Stream to help remove barriers to accessibility in your workplace through:
- retrofit activities; and
- providing accessible workplace technologies.
Examples of eligible projects include installing automated door openers, constructing a universally designed office, securing voice-activated software or retrofitting washrooms to make them accessible.
All projects funded must aim at creating and/or maintaining employment opportunities for persons with disabilities. The Government of Canada will provide successful applicants with 65 percent of eligible project costs, up to a maximum of $50,000 per funded project.
