Project proposals under the federal Enabling Accessibility (EAF) funding program, designed to improving community and workplace accessibility and safety for Canadians with disabilities are now being accepted. Submission deadline is July 26, 2017.
Glen Motz, Member of Parliament for Medicine Hat-Cardston-Warner encourages community organizations and employers that are considering construction of accessible ramps, installation of automatic doors, or the provision of accessible information and communications technologies, among other such modernization plans, to review the program eligibility criteria.
“It is imperative that all people, regardless of mobility limitations, have full access to work place and community venues,” he stated. “And with up to $50,000 in EAF funding available under Workplace Accessibility and the Community Accessibility streams, the decision to undertake renovations should be now.”
Projects funded under the Workplace Accessibility stream, must improve accessibility or safety in workplaces in order to create or maintain job opportunities for Canadians with disabilities. The Community Accessibility stream removes barriers and increase accessibility for people with disabilities, thus allowing access to community programs and services.
Eligible activities for both funding streams include renovation, retrofit or construction activities specifically designed to eliminate barriers and increase safety for people with disabilities. This also includes the provision of information and communication technologies that eliminate systemic accessibility barriers.
