When considering resuming programming, recreational activities or opening of facilities it is important to review all guidelines provided by the Government of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Health Authority. After reviewing the guidelines, if there are any questions or concerns it is important to contact your local Public Health Office to ensure public health guidelines and restrictions are being followed before resuming programs, activities or opening of facilities.
Sport, Culture & Recreation COVID Assistance Grant
Parkland Valley has been able to set aside a small amount of funds to provide some financial support to non-profit groups that deliver sport, culture and recreation activities that are struggling to pay power & gas bills due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These organizations have had limited access to raise funds to maintain their facilities due to the pandemic restrictions.
– Organizations eligible to apply include non-profit organizations such as Seniors’ Centres and organizations who pay power & gas bills to operate cultural, sport or recreation facilities not operated by Municipalities or First Nations bands.
– Organizations applying must exist within the Parkland Valley District boundaries.
– Ice rinks/surfaces are ineligible.
