How does it work? Individuals with a disability can apply for funding from the Inclusive Recreation Activity Fund to help cover activity related expenses. Want to join a gym, or aqua size class? We can help with registration fees. Want to attend a summer camp or after school program? We can pay for that as well! We’ll even help you with some of your equipment and transportation needs too. In fact, we can cover expenses for just about anything, as long as the activity is “ACTIVE”, and not just a “one-time thing”. Maximum Request: $250.
FUNDING DEADLINES FOR 2017-2018: (July 14/17 October 13/17 and January 19/18)

How does it work? Municipalities or organizations that provide recreation services can apply for funding from the Inclusive Recreation Activity Fund to help cover inclusive programming or facility related expenses. Want to offer a parallel sport program in your recreation programs, or add specialized equipment to your facility? We can help with these costs. Want to provide a ramp or upgrade your washrooms to include wheelchair access? We can cover expenses for just about anything, as long as the program or facility will be part of the recreation delivery system and used to make those individuals with a disability more “ACTIVE”. Maximum Request: $2500.
Please note: $2500 is the total amount for this program. If the complete amount is dispersed in the first round (July), there will be no remaining money for the October and January rounds of funding. If funds remain, the amount will be updated here and available for the subsequent rounds of funding.
FUNDING DEADLINES FOR 2017-2018 WILL BE: (July 14/17 October 13/17 and January 19/18)
Municipalities/organizations must provide a letter of intent with your application detailing how these funds will be used and the benefit to your community/organization.
