Seven businesses in South Algonquin (Ontario) have been approved for Enabling Accessibility Fund grants, a report said.

Angela Pollak, the South Algonquin Business Alliance (SABA) secretary and the owner of Four Corners Algonquin—which provides camping, glamping, and tiny-house accommodations—shared the information with local news.

The sum is close to $500,000 (CAD) to fund projects that will make these organizations more accessible, which includes her own.

An event on October 19 was attended by the Ontario Minister of Seniors and Accessibility Raymond Cho and other dignitaries. The event included a luncheon and a tour around facilities with improved accessibility through the assistance of EAF funding. This includes Four Corners Algonquin.

These EAF grants have been proven to be highly effective for South Algonquin, according to Pollak. When she received her first grant, she introduced it to the community.

“We did a couple of grant writing workshops to help them understand what the process was like, and then I worked closely with a number of people over two application cycles to start applying for these grants. So, we’ve had really amazing success,” she says.

Pollak invited any local businesses that wish to pursue any grants to get in touch with her through SABA, at [email protected], or through Four Corners Algonquin at [email protected]

According to Canada.ca, the EAF provides funds for projects to allow workplaces and communities throughout Canada to be more accessible for persons with disabilities, giving them more opportunities to participate in community-based programs, activities, and services, as well as to gain access to jobs.
