Government of Canada helps make workplaces and communities more accessible through call for proposals - CANADA NEWSWIRE

Originally published: June 1, 2017

During National AccessAbility Week, as we celebrate, highlight and promote inclusion and accessibility across Canada, we are especially aware of how greatly society benefits when all Canadians can participate equally in their workplaces and communities.

To help achieve a more accessible Canada, the Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities, invited businesses, community organizations and other eligible recipients to apply for funding through the 2017 Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) Call for Proposals.

Canadians with disabilities face challenges every day which prevent them from participating fully in their communities and the economy. Through programs such as the EAF, the Government of Canada is committed to reducing these accessibility barriers and ensuring that everyone has equal access and opportunity.

This call for proposals includes Workplace Accessibility and Community Accessibility funding streams.
