The EAF Workplace Accessibility Stream gives eligible businesses and other employers across Canada the opportunity to submit funding proposals for projects that improve accessibility and safety for people with disabilities through the construction, renovation or retrofit of workplaces and the provision of accessible information and communications technologies.

The EAF Community Accessibility Stream provides funding for projects that help improve accessibility and safety through the construction, renovation or retrofit of community facilities and the provision of accessible information and communications technologies so that community programs and services can be accessed by people with disabilities.

Businesses with up to 99 full time equivalent employees and community organizations can receive government grant project funding of up to $50,000. Not-for-profit organizations, for-profit organizations, small municipalities (population under 125,000), Indigenous organizations (including band councils, tribal councils and self-government entities) and territorial governments are eligible to apply.

The Standard Grant Application for Funding can be submitted under either of EAF’s funding streams: the Workplace Accessibility Stream or the Community Accessibility Stream. For assistance in determining the best stream for your funding application, please see the Overview section on this website.
