Note: Programs that are complete are not eligible for funding

The Helping Hand Fund provides financial support, set at a maximum of $250 per child, per the calendar year towards sports fees. Fees that are NOT registration fees. The calendar year runs from January 1 – December

If the child needs equipment, money for travel or other needs to participate we will make a decision based on the need for each individual.

For assistance with registration fees, we encourage parents to connect with KidSport who have Grants that are intended to be used for sport registration fees and equipment.

Special circumstances may be considered

Families who are low income, on AISH, unemployed, or receiving income support through provincial government are all considered
