Skate Canada: Alberta-NWT/Nunavut supports Inclusive Skating through the following grant application process for the 2016-2017 season:

  • Section clubs (and partners such as Alberta Sport & Recreation Association for the Blind) may be eligible to apply for a grant. Funds must be used for planned Inclusive Skating (IS) programming within the 2016-2017 season.
  • Funds must be used for one or more of the following areas:
    • Coaching support (e.g. IS coach training opportunities, IS coaching fees, Program Assistant training, Program Assistant Recognition, etc.)
    • Club support (e.g. IS program ice fees, IS Skate Canada membership fees, club IS program fees, etc.)
    • Event support (e.g. CanSkate Element Events costs for IS athletes, competition-related expenses for IS athletes competing or participating in an event)
    • Adaptive equipment support (e.g. any individual specialized equipment including skates, helmets, frames, braces, or specialized equipment for club IS programming use)
  • Clubs that receive funding must provide year-end reporting in the form of receipts or other supporting documentation for funds spent. As well, photos and stories would be greatly appreciated.
  • $10,000.00 available funds to be divided amongst approved requests throughout the season.

Deadlines to submit requests:

  • December 5, 2016 (funding requests for winter 2017 programming) $4000.00 available.  Deadline has been extended to February 1, 2017.
