Training Alberta's Recreational Leaders


Alberta Recreational Grants

There are various funds and grants available for recreational facilities and communities. However not many facilities or individuals are taking advantage of these opportunities, or don’t know about them. Use the resources that are available to you! Remember, provincial and federal grants CAN be stacked!

To help you, we have listed external funding and grant opportunities from the government, corporations, non-for-profits, and other organizations that are specific to recreation and facilities. 

This list is being constantly updated and if you have any questions or recommendations, make sure you email us!
