The Right Fit Project (RFP) is an effort to address challenges in matching affordable, wheelchair-accessible homes in Metro Vancouver with people who need them.

Originally launched as a three (3) year project partnership project between the Individualized Funding Resource Centre (IFRC) Society and the Disability Alliance BC, the project was aimed at addressing the systemic barriers and test streamlined models to connect wheelchair users with accessible, affordable housing that meets their needs. The Right Fit Project (RFP) has left its pilot phase and continues to support systemic change and innovation through a collaborative, ground-up approach.

The Right Fit Project is led by Disability Alliance BC in partnership with the Individualized Funding Resource Centre Society, BC Housing, City of Vancouver, Fraser Health Authority, Vancouver Coastal Health Authority and Ministry of Social Development & Social Innovation. The project is generously funded by the City of Vancouver and Vancity's Reaching Home Program.

We are pleased to announce a three year partnership with the Disability Alliance BC, for the Right Fit Pilot Project (RFPP). The RFPP is a collaborative effort to address barriers and test the streamlined models to connect Wheelchair users with affordable, accessible housing in the lower mainland.

The pilot will develop, and test, a case management model to help a rolling caseload of 20 wheelchair users find homes that fit their needs, in addition to the personal supports needed to live independently. Project partners will work directly with applicants and with housing and service providers to learn more about systemic barriers.

Paul Gauthier, Executive Director of IFRC and Jane Dyson, Executive Director of Disability Alliance BC will be on CBC Early Edition Monday, December 11 at 7:40am, to speak about this project for a special co-hosted segment with Rick Hanson. Tune in, share the news and learn more about this exciting project!

Led by Disability Alliance BC, other partners in this project include in partnership, BC Housing, City of Vancouver, Fraser Health Authority, Vancouver Coastal Health Authority & the Ministry of Social Development & Poverty Reduction.

We have hope for improvement and change from lessons learned from this project. If you’d like to learn more about how to be involved in the RFPP, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
