Financial Resources

In Canada and many of the provinces, sources of funding exist to help families afford the purchase of any accessible vehicle, to offset the costs of converting an existing vehicle and/or to make home renovations (such as lifts, ramps, flooring upgrades or door-widening). As we grow, we will continue to identify and add more resources and advice on how to apply and improve your chances for funding.
