Thanks for your interest in the Rick Hansen Foundation Access4All Canada 150 Signature Project. Recipients of an Access4All Barrier Buster grant have been notified, please visit our Projects Showcase page for more information.
With funding support from the Government of Canada, the Rick Hansen Foundation has granted over $1.5 million to schools and community groups to help Canadians activate 55 large-scale “Barrier Buster” infrastructure improvement projects and awareness building events in their communities.
Through the Access4All Project, Canadians are encouraged to identify accessibility barriers in public places in their communities and apply for funding from the Rick Hansen Foundation to remove them.
Project leaders submitted applications for up to $30,000 in funding for a Barrier Buster project, which includes an accessibility infrastructure improvement project (up to $20,000) and an associated community awareness building event (up to $10,000).
Access4All will break down barriers in communities from coast to coast and create real and lasting impact for Canadians with disabilities.
