Recreation Fee Assistance Program

Financial support may be available to people who are currently facing financial challenges and want to participate in Town-operated recreational programs and activities. Children 3-18, adults and seniors are eligible if family units meet income guidelines 

Pending available funding, this program offers an income–based subsidy intended to make recreation more affordable for local residents. This program relies on funding from grants & donations. Many thanks to the Foothills Salvage and Recycling Society for their generous contributions to this program.

Details of the program

  • The program covers Okotoks Recreation Centre passes or admission, as well as any registered program (including cultural, certifications, arts, fitness, personal development, and day camps) offered through the Town Community Program Guide

  • Up to $200 per year in subsidy is available to each eligible person. 
    The subsidy can be applied to reduce the cost of programs by 80% 

  • Children ages 6-18, adults and seniors are eligible if family units meet income guidelines

  • Preschoolers 3-6 are considered if ineligible for Stay At Home Parents Support

Qualifying for Recreation Fee Assistance

To be eligible for financial support  you must live in the Town of Okotoks, Turner Valley, Black Diamond or the MD of Foothills (in close proximity to these towns) and meet  fee assistance income guidelines

Fee Assistance applications are now accepted year-round and any subsidy granted is valid for 1 year from date of approval.  Please note that if you have received subsidy previously, applying for a new subsidy invalidates any previous subsidy balance remaining and these funds are forfeited.  We recommend you contact Okotoks Recreation Centre Client Services staff at  403-938-8954 to review your current subsidy balance and expiry date before applying​
