Introduction

Government of Canada Launches Call for Proposals to Support People With Disabilities.

Main Digest

The Honorable Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development, has invited not-for-profit organizations to apply for funding for projects that support the Government's commitments under the United Nations (UN) Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

"The Government of Canada's ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2010 underscored our commitment to remove obstacles and create opportunities for persons with disabilities," said Minister Finley. "This call for proposals provides us with an opportunity to further demonstrate that commitment by supporting not-for-profit organizations in their efforts to strengthen the social and economic inclusion of Canadians with disabilities."

Selected projects will focus on one or more of the following four priorities: active living, accessibility, vulnerable populations and increasing awareness of disability-related issues. Organizations can receive up to $250,000 per year for up to three years. Successful not-for-profit organizations will be required to secure at least 10 percent of total eligible project costs from non-federal government sources. Organizations can submit proposals until August 17, 2012.

Through the Social Development Partnerships Program - Disability Component (SDPP-D), the Government provides $11 million annually in support of a wide range of community-based projects designed to improve social inclusion and tackle barriers faced by people with disabilities.
