About

The Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) provides funding for projects that make Canadian communities and workplaces more accessible for persons with disabilities. The EAF supports Canada's Disability Inclusion Action Plan, in particular Pillar 3 - Accessible and Inclusive Communities. To learn more, consult the Canada's Disability Inclusion Action Plan, 2022. The EAF aims to create more opportunities for persons with disabilities to: 

  • take part in community activities, programs, and services, or 

  • access employment 


There are 3 different program components in the EAF. Each component holds separate calls for funding. 


The mid-sized projects component gives contribution funding for larger construction projects. To be eligible for funding, facilities must offer programs and services to include persons with disabilities in: 

  • their communities, and/or 

  • the labour market 

Funding

Between $500,000 and a maximum of $3,000,000 for a project that is up to 2 years in duration


The EAF has introduced flat rate costing to the small and mid-sized projects components. 

The flat rate calculator provides the amount of funding for: 

  • ramps

  • elevators lifts 

  • pool lifts 

  • multi-sensory rooms/stations
