HEART Program (Low income accessibility)

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to participate in recreation. That's why we offer the Have Everyone Access Recreation Today (HEART) program! A coupon book for free admissions and discounts on programs is available for low income households based on Stats Canada low income cut-off rates.
