Access to Recreation in Your Community

Can't afford to register your child to play a sport? We might be able to help.
1 in 3 Canadian families cannot afford to enrol their children in sport or recreation activities. That means that many kids are missing out. All kids should have the chance to participate in a sport and on a team, so they have the opportunity to:
  • Become physically active.
  • Improve their self-esteem and self-confidence.
  • Learn life-long skills.
  • Improve their academic performance.
  • Make new friends.
  • Share and celebrate their culture. 
There are programs across the Kenora-Rainy Districts that can help low-income families with sport and recreation costs for children and youth.
