Child and Youth Recreation Funding Programs

The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo is committed to promoting healthy and active lifestyles for all residents in the region. The following two programs can help families afford to register their children for organized sports, setting the foundation for good health and wellness as they grow.


No kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sports. KidSport is a provincial program that provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.

Applications are available on the Kidsport Wood Buffalo website.
