Start date: 26 September, 2016
End date: 31 January, 2018
To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday and the 30th anniversary of the Rick Hansen Man In Motion World Tour, the Rick Hansen Foundation’s Access4All Canada 150 Signature Initiative is inspiring and empowering youth and community leaders across the country to create a more inclusive and accessible Canada.
With funding support from the Government of Canada, the Rick Hansen Foundation will offer grants of up to $30,000 to at least 50 schools and community groups to undertake infrastructure improvement project and awareness building events in their communities. These Barrier Buster Projects will help remove physical barriers in schools and communities and create awareness about accessibility across Canada.

Schools and communities across Canada are encouraged to identify accessibility improvement projects and apply to Access4All.
Access4All is breaking down barriers in communities from coast to coast and creating real and lasting impact for Canadians with disabilities.
