Government of Canada accepting project proposals to support Canadians with disabilities
“Canada is at its best and all of society benefits when everyone is included. That is why I strongly encourage community organizations to apply for funding through the Opportunities Fund for Persons with Disabilities, and employers to become fully engaged in this program. Leveraging the talents of all Canadians makes for a stronger, more inclusive Canada.”
– The Honourable Kent Hehr, Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities
The Opportunities Fund for Persons with Disabilities (OF) has an annual budget of approximately $40 million.
Since its inception in 1997, the OF has helped approximately 110,000 people with disabilities across Canada.
The OF provides financial support to community organizations that assist people with a permanent physical or mental disability that restricts their ability to perform daily activities.
OF program participants typically have significant detachment from the labour force and are ineligible for assistance under Employment Insurance employment benefits.
