Backgrounder: Enabling Accessibility Fund


The Enabling Accessibility Fund is a federal grants and contributions program which supports community-based projects across Canada aimed at improving accessibility in public facilities and in workplaces.

Funding is provided through two streams: Community Accessibility Stream and Workplace Accessibility Stream.

The Community Accessibility Stream provides funding to eligible recipients for capital cost projects that improve accessibility in public facilities to improve access to programs and services for people with disabilities. Projects must be directly related to removing barriers and increasing accessibility for people with disabilities in Canadian communities. All projects must also respond to specific eligibility criteria identified in the call for proposals, including support from the community.

The Workplace Accessibility Stream supports projects that improve accessibility and safety in workplaces across Canada through capital cost investments, i.e. renovation, retrofit or construction of facilities in which job opportunities can be created or maintained for people with disabilities. Projects must respond to systemic accessibility issues in workplaces.
