Financial Assistance

The City of Port Coquitlam does not believe that anyone should have to miss out on the opportunity to get involved in recreation programs due to a lack of financial resources. The Recreation Department offers the following support services:

Subsidy for Individuals

If your financial circumstances make it difficult for you to pay the full fee for programs, you may qualify for a subsidy. Download a individual subsidy application form. Application forms are available from all City-owned recreation facilities, by calling 604.927.PLAY.

Subsidy for Personal Assistants

It is generally accepted and understood that recreation services should be inclusive for all. However, physical or mental limitations can prove to be a barrier that will prevent some citizens from independently participating in recreation opportunities.

Leisure Buddy Program

If physical or mental limitations limit participation you may benefit from the assistance of a Leisure Buddy. Leisure Buddies are local volunteers who provide support in facility based programs. If you require a leisure buddy, please click here.

Canadian Tire Jumpstart

Canadian Tire Jumpstart is a national charitable program launched by the family of Canadian Tire. This program helps financially disadvantaged kids (ages 4-18) participate in organized sport and recreation by covering registration and equipment. More information is available by visiting
