Until July 26, 2016, the EAF is accepting applications for funding from businesses and organizations through its Workplace Accessibility Stream and Community Accessibility Stream.
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:
  • renovation;
  • construction;
  • 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.
