Become a Youth Accessibility Leader!

Enabling Accessibility Fund, Employment & Social Development Canada

We are looking for young Canadians to help make Canada more accessible for persons with disabilities.

The Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) Youth Innovation Component provides an opportunity for dynamic youth who want to demonstrate leadership and a commitment to their communities to have a direct impact in the lives of persons with disabilities. By becoming a Youth Accessibility Leader, you will promote the program and engage organizations to apply for its funding. You can do this by addressing accessibility barriers in public spaces or workplaces within your community. Through this work, you will volunteer your time to:

  • create greater awareness about accessibility needs;
  • encourage organizations to apply for EAF funding to address existing accessibility barriers; and
  • build a more inclusive and accessible Canada.

We want you and what you have to offer, if you are:

  • between 15 and 30 years of age;
  • determined to make a difference in your community;
  • wanting to develop valuable skills and gain key experience; and
  • authorized to work legally in Canada.
