Both KidSport Alberta and the ISCA recognize the importance of doing more to assist Indigenous children into sport.  They are committed to doing their part by providing funding for sport registration fees to help break down one of the many barriers of sport participation.
Indigenous families in Alberta that live in areas of the province not covered by a local KidSport chapter now have a specific online application to apply for KidSport funding. A family should check here to ensure they are not covered by a KidSport chapter prior to using this new application form.
If the family is not covered by a local chapter please use this registration form to register for the ISCA KidSport application.  This registration is only required once, the family login to the KidSport online application system will then have access to the application for any future applications.  If the family lives in an area covered by a local chapter please click on the chapter name in this list to be taken to their website to apply.
Indigenous families who have completed the registration form will login to the KidSport online application system at this link.

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. The KidSport Alberta Provincial Fund provides grants of up to $250 per eligible kid, per year (January 1st - December 31st) towards sport registration fees.

If the child needs equipment, we will make a referral to a partner agency. Grants are intended to be used for sport registration fees; travel and competitions are not eligible for funding.

Eligibility Requirements

KidSport Alberta uses the federal government low income guidelines plus approximately 30% to determine eligibility.

To determine financial eligibility for grants provided through the Provincial Fund, the applicant needs to submit one of the following documents.  Proof of income for each adult in the home is required.

Preferred Document:

  • Canada Child Benefit Notice-page 1 and 2 most recent tax year

Other Options:

  • Proof of Income Statement-each adult in the home- accessed through CRA My Account
  • Notice of Assessment-each adult in the home-most recent tax year
