Municipal Information

The City of Windsor and the County of Essex have recently embarked on a new poverty reduction strategy called "Pathway to Potential" which will increase the quality of life for seniors, families and youth living with low-income. Recreation and health is included within this poverty reduction strategy. The Town of Kingsville has proposed a new program called the "Youth & Senior's Recreation Affordability Initiative" to provide financial assistance for program registration and equipment to Kingsville Residents Only.

 

The new Recreation Affordability Initiative, a program through the "Pathways to Potential Strategy" will be managed in a similar manner as the previous NCBS subsidy program, requiring proof of eligibility and requesting an application form from Parks & Recreation. Sport organizations and community groups will be reimbursed for individual registrations that meet the requirements. Families are encouraged to read the eligibility guidelines and to contact Kingsville Arena for more information.

  • Funds are on a limited basis per program and are "First Come, First Served"
  • The Town reserves the right to reject any claim if funding runs out or is no longer available
  • Only programs approved by the Town of Kingsville are eligible for coverage
  • Children must be 17 years of age or under and a resident of the Town of Kingsville
  • The Town reserves the right to limit the amount of programs per child. (i.e. A single child will be limited to either Hockey or Skating but not both during the current season)
  • One form per child, per program. No photocopies or other forms will be accepted
  • Forms are only available during regular office hours at the Kingsville Arena, from Monday to Friday, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
  • All forms/receipts must be returned within 30 days of the end of program registration. Late forms may not be processed if funding is no longer available
  • All forms must be signed by the program/organization representative to be valid
  • Proof of NCBS eligibility (Canada Child Tax Benefit Notice) must accompany all forms. The notice must state "National Child Benefit Supplement" along with the basic benefit
  • Families will be required to pay 10% of the registration fee for each child per program
