Residential Adaptation Assistance Program

The Société d’Habitation du Québec’s (SHQ) Residential Adaptation Assistance Program (RAAP) is for people with disabilities, i.e. individuals with a deficiency causing a significant and persistent disability, who are likely to encounter obstacles in performing everyday activities.

Its goal is to allow the person with a disability to enter and leave their home, to access the essential rooms of their home and to perform activities of everyday life safely.

This program provides financial assistance to the owners of a dwelling occupied by a person with a disability so that the adaptation work can be carried out.


Any person with a disability who is limited in carrying out their everyday activities at home can benefit from the program, provided that they:

  • provide a supporting document proving that their disability is significant and persistent
  • are not eligible for financial assistance for residential adaptation work under a private or public program or insurance plan, including:
  • The Société d’Assurance Automobile du Québec (SAAQ) insurance plan
  • The Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) insurance plan
  • The Compensation for Victims of Crimes (IVAC) program
  • An insurance plan administered by a private or public corporation
  • Veterans Affairs Canada’s Health Benefits Program (home adaptation component)

Other conditions may apply.
