Leisure Access Program

The Leisure Access program provides low-income residents with access to recreation programs and services. The program ensures that residents are not restricted from access or participation in a reasonable variety of recreation activities due to financial hardship.

Residents are provided with a mechanism for accessing subsidies which incorporates confidentiality, dignity, privacy and easy access.

Canadian Tire Jumpstart Program


Sometimes, families need financial assistance to get their kids into a sport or physical activity. The Jumpstart program is committed to helping all families access a range of activities. Jumpstart funding is open to children aged 4 - 18 years old and the program must be a sport or physical activity. Programs should be a minimum of five weeks in duration and include at least one session per week. In the case of sports camps, the program must last at least five consecutive days for consideration.

How do I apply for Jumpstart funding?

Visit the Jumpstart website to access the Jumpstart granting system (the City of White Rock is unable to apply on behalf of community members). Once the registration process is complete you will have the ability to apply for funding. Visit the Child Grant webpage.
