I was pleased to visit Liz Murphy, owner of Calabogie Peaks Resort, to announce $50,000 in funding through the Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF).
This funding is welcome news for the community.
As home to the Calabogie Adaptive Ski Program, Calabogie Peaks is a leader in providing full access to people of all mobilities.
This funding will further enhance the Peak’s history of trail blazing in making snowsports more available to Canadians living with disabilities.
The grant will go towards the installation of an elevator at Calabogie Peaks Resort. An elevator will make the resort lodge fully accessible to all visitors year-round.
The EAF supports community-based projects across Canada that improve accessibility, remove barriers, and enable Canadians with disabilities to participate in and contribute to their communities. The EAF was established in 2008 to help fund small projects in communities across Canada to improve physical accessibility for persons with disabilities.
Between 2008 and 2010 the program provided funding to hundreds of accessibility projects across Canada.
