Community Assistance and Event Sponsorships

The County is proud to support our communities through the Community Assistance Grant program and event sponsorships.

Community Assistance Grant and Event Sponsorships

In light of this complicated time and growing concerns around Covid-19,  we have suspended awarding sponsorships for events scheduled for the second quarter of April, May & June 2020 until further notice. Be advised that the March Recreation Advisory Committee was cancelled and postponed to a later date.  If you had previously submitted an application for funding scheduled this quarter please email Parks & Recreation with new date or deadlines for funding requirements.

The County recognizes the hard work and resilience of our community groups during this time and is aware of the financial impacts of not being able to host  your scheduled event can have on your organization.  When considering hosting or rescheduling your event please take guidance from public health agencies at the local, provincial and federal level.  

Community Assistance:
The purpose of the Community Assistance Grant is to provide operating assistance to non profit organizations and volunteer groups that promote active, safe and sustainable communities.  This grant program is suitable for organizations that do not qualify as a Recreation and/or Culture group.  Recreation and Culture organizations can visit the Recreation and Culture grants page for a list of grant programs available.
