LIFT is thrilled to announce our Request for Qualifications for a new initiative that will provide invaluable support to social purpose organizations (SPOs) that support social inclusion and employment outcomes for persons living with disabilities. This initiative is aimed at helping organizations who are removing barriers for persons living with disabilities, scaling innovative programs or services, or demonstrating measureable response, specifically toward employment or self-employment outcomes.

LIFT is seeking to qualify up to eight social purpose organizations SPOs (not-for-profits, charities, or social enterprises) that serve Canadians living with a disability by providing programs that lead to employment or self-employment; that prepare employers to be inclusive and set up for success; and that reduce barriers to social inclusion – ensuring participation in their communities in ways that enhance their well-being and individual potential.

LIFT will choose SPOs with proven track records and unrealized potential for substantial growth. You can learn more about the initiative, RFQ criteria, and how to apply, on the LIFT website. SPOs interested in applying, should submit their expression of interest by October 15, 2019, by emailing  with your SPO’s name and primary contact information.

The RFQ submission deadline is October 25. If you have any questions, please contact our team.
