Recreation and Culture Fee Assistance Program

Launched in November 2015, the City of Lethbridge is excited to announce a Fee Assistance program for citizens who face financial barriers to participating in recreational and cultural opportunities.


Each qualifying individual can receive up to $150 for one activity in the spring, and one activity in the fall, offered by a local organization providing recreational and cultural programming and/or memberships.


Individuals who live in the city, and who qualify, can apply to the program by doing the following:

1. Review (and print if possible) the application form found here

2. Research programs/facilities of interest.  This can be done with the assistance of City staff at the meeting, as well.

3. Set up a meeting with City of Lethbridge staff by calling Lori at 403.320.4716 or emailing lori.harasem@lethbridge.ca

4. Bring the completed application (if unable to print, applications can be filled out at the meeting), along with required documentation (proof of income status and proof of residency) outlined in the application


Funding will provided until budgeted funds are used up in any given year.

Funding can be combined with Kidsport and/or Jumpstart for programs and individuals that qualify.
