$85,817 for accessible play structures in Hammond

The City of Clarence-Rockland will receive $85,817 in financial support through the small projects component of the Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF). The announcement was made on Thursday, May 23, 2019  by Glengarry-Prescott-Russell MP Francis Drouin, on behalf of the Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Public Services and Procurement and Accessibility.

The support granted will allow the implementation of accessible play structures at Alphonse Carrière Park in Hammond in the City of Clarence-Rockland.

The federal EAF aims to break down the barriers that prevent persons with disabilities from fully participating in all aspects of Canadian society, ensuring that everyone has equal access and equal opportunity.

Through the 2018 EAF Call for proposals for small projects, eligible organizations could apply for project funding for up to $100,000 per project under two funding streams: Community Accessibility and Workplace Accessibility.

The Workplace Accessibility stream gives eligible organizations across Canada funding for projects that improve accessibility and safety for persons with disabilities through renovations, retrofits or construction of workplaces, including the provision of accessible information and communication technologies for work use.

The Community Accessibility stream provides funding for projects that help improve accessibility and safety through renovations, retrofits or construction of community facilities and venues so that programs and services can be accessed by persons with disabilities. This includes the provision of information and communication technologies for community use that eliminate systemic accessibility barriers.
