KidSport Ontario


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 Ontario 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 Ontario reviews the financial barriers faced by the child’s family when determining eligibility for grants provided through the Provincial Fund.

NOTE: In addition to the documentation required, KidSport Ontario will be verifying the following information from the Sport Organization for your health and safety:

  1. That provincial government has allowed for sport to resume
  2. That the municipality has allowed for sport to resume
  3. That the governing body (PSO) has publically released a Return-To-Play procedure that member organizations must follow
  4. That the sport group has a publically posted Return-to-Play procedure 

If you are unsure of your eligibility to receive a grant, please reach out to .
