Organizations can now apply for funding for projects that will create or enhance accessibility for people with disabilities in Canadian communities through the Government of Canada's Enabling Accessibility Fund.
Rick Norlock, Member of Parliament for Northumberland - Quinte West today invited organizations to submit proposals for small projects.
These may include:
"The Government of Canada recognizes the abilities of all Canadians and is committed to removing barriers for people with disabilities," said MP Norlock.
"Through the Enabling Accessibility Fund, our Government is improving access to facilities, activities and services to enable all Canadians to participate more fully in society."
The call for proposals was launched by Dr. Kellie Leitch, Parliamentary Secretary to the Honorable Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development, on August 21, 2012.
