What is a Grant?

KidSport provides grants to kids from families facing financial barriers so they can participate in registered sport programs and experience the lifelong benefits of a season of sport. KidSport Lac La Biche provides grants of up to $500 per eligible child, per year (January 1st - December 31st) towards sport registration fees.

Do you need equipment in order to play? Let us know, and we can make a referral to a partner agency. KidSport grants are intended to be used for sport registration fees; travel and competitions are not eligible for funding.

Am I Eligible For KidSport Funding?

1)  You must live in Lac la Biche County.   Your child may be participating in an activity that is outside of the county.

2)  Your child must be 18 years old or younger.

3)  Financial qualification:  The whole idea of Kidsport is to help out families with lower incomes to still enable their kids to engage in sports.  Essentially, family net income must be  $77,000 or less, unless you have several children. You are eligible if you receive:

The Alberta Child and Family Benefit:  You must be Albertan citizen, a parent of one or more children, have filed a tax return and your annual income is less than $77,000.

You MUST submit a copy of your Benefit document listing the kids covered with your Kidsport Application.

The Canada Child Benefit:  You must be an Albertan citizen, a parent of one or more children, and have filed a tax return.  (see chart below)
You MUST submit pages 1 and 2 of your Canada Child Benefit form, which clarifies your family income.

Are a NEW Canadian:  New Canadians, including refugees, may not have Canadian or Alberta benefits in place, but they may have kids who would like to play sports.  If your family income is less than $77,000, you may apply for Kidsport funding.
Your application must include a note from a Canadian sponsor attesting to your circumstances.
