The City of Toronto is committed to increasing access to recreational activities by offering yearly credits, free programs and older adult discounts.
Yearly credit (Welcome Policy)
The City of Toronto offers a yearly credit, called the Welcome Policy, for residents with low incomes that can be used to register for City recreation programs. Those receiving social assistance (Ontario Works) and living in Toronto are pre-approved to receive this credit, and should speak to their caseworker. More information about the yearly credit is available at http://www.toronto.ca/wp.
Many community centres offer free recreation programs including leisure swimming and skating, and drop-in programs for children, youth and older adults. More information about free and low-cost programming options is available at http://bit.ly/1At00bg.
Older adults (60+ years) who register for adult programs receive a 50 per cent discount.
