Sometimes, families need financial assistance to get their kids into a sport or physical activity. We're committed to helping all families access a range of activities, from boxing to bowling and skating to skiing, and more.
Our Community Development Grants have two funding streams. The Operational stream assists organizations with operational and administrative costs, while the Programming stream helps organizations develop or sustain sports and recreational programming for kids aged 4-18 in financial need and youth with disabilities between the ages of 4-25.
Qualified organizations may apply for one or both streams throughout the year. While organizations can apply for both an Operational or Programming Grant within the same period, the requests must be clearly justified, and funding will be dependent on quality of the application and overall demand.
Play to Lead enables young women to develop the skills, confidence, and relationships to become leaders, while improving gender equity and diversity in sport. The hybrid program unites a group of female athletes and their coaches, empowering them to reach their full potential and fostering a powerful network of girls in sport in Canada.
