The Right Fit Project

April 16, 2021 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm PDT

Wooden toy house and heart.

Join IFRCs Paul Gauthier on April 16th to learn all about The Right Fit Project (RFP)! This project is a multi-partner service designed to address the crisis in wheelchair accessible housing by matching affordable, accessible homes and independent living supports with people who need them in the Lower Mainland. 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, the Individualized Funding Resource Centre (IFRC) Society entered into a partnership with the Disability Alliance BC with the hope that the project would address systemic barriers and test streamlined models to connect wheelchair users with accessible, affordable housing that meets their needs. Now that it’s no longer a pilot project, the Right Fit Project continues to address the housing challenges faced by people with disabilities in the lower mainland find accessible, affordable housing. To find out more about this innovative, ground breaking project, please join us!

Paul Gauthier is the Founder and Executive Director of the Individualized Funding Resource Centre (IFRC) Society. Paul’s key responsibility is program development for the IFRC and in collaboration with other organizations and municipalities in the province. He oversees all financial operations, and government resources.

Prior to the IFRC, Paul’s career also focused on improving the quality of life for all British Columbians with disabilities and has been a key figure in multiple, successful municipal projects that impact people with disabilities.  Paul is a founder of the Choice in Supports for Independent Living (CSIL) program; a government funding program which allows people with disabilities to remain in their homes and employ their own personal support workers through individualized funding. His passion for helping people with disabilities has never waivered and his steadfastness lends him to being proof of its benefits to full participation in society.
