KidSport New Brunswick


If your community doesn’t have a local chapter yet, don’t worry! You can still apply for a KidSport grant through the Provincial Fund.

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 New Brunswick provides grants of up to $400 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 New Brunswick uses the following eligibility requirements to determine financial eligibility for grants provided through the Provincial Fund.

  • Most recent Canada Child Benefit Notice
  • Explanation of extenuating circumstances

if you are new to Canada and arrived in the country less than 12 months ago, please contact our KidSport coordinator at 506-238-3875 or to learn about the documents you must provide.
