Community Rink Affordability Grant

Saskatchewan is built on the strength of its communities and upon a history of vibrant, self-sufficient and socially supportive towns and cities. Healthy individuals and communities are dependent upon a recreation infrastructure that provides attractive and safe places and spaces in which to play, socialize, rejuvenate and challenge the mind, body and spirit.
In support of this infrastructure, the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport is pleased to partner with SPRA to offer the Community Rink Affordability Grant.
The application deadline for this year's Community Rink Affordability Grant is December 12, 2014.

Visit our website for more information.
