Enabling Accessibility Fund - Small Scale Projects Open for Applications

June 5, 2020

EAP Program

The Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) provides funding for projects that make Canadian communities and workplaces more accessible for persons with disabilities. EAF aims to create more opportunities for persons with disabilities to take part in community activities, programs and services, or to access employment.

To receive funding, your organization must be a:

  • not-for-profit organization
  • business
  • small municipality
  • Indigenous organization (including band councils, tribal councils and self-government entities)
  • territorial government

There are 3 different program components in EAF. Each component holds separate calls for funding which further defines the eligibility criteria.

The small projects component (Apply Today!)

The small projects component provides grant funding for small scale construction and communication technology projects that improve accessibility in communities or workplaces. Grants can be up to $100,000 per project. Project examples may include:

  • building ramps, accessible doors and accessible washrooms
  • installing screen reader devices and hearing loop systems
  • constructing a universally designed office

New

This year, EAF is introducing flat rate. Flat rate determines the amount of funding for constructing ramps, accessible doors and accessible washrooms. If you are applying for funding for these projects, learn more about flat rate.
