Discounts for Low-Income New Canadians

Every year, we seek donations to provide discounts to low-income new Canadians for certain outdoor activities. Our discounts allow people who struggle to meet their basic needs to participate in our activities.

As a first step, contact us to request a discount at [email protected]  Once your discount has been approved, you will need to register in person at the Milton Park Recreation Association office.

Because the funds we have to provide discounts are limited, if you can pay a bit more than the minimum, more people will benefit. Paying more than the minimum depends on your own situation and is up to you. If you can pay 50% of the regular price, for example, we can help you and someone else. Thank you for your understanding!

To be eligible for a discount for low-income new Canadians, you must be able to answer yes to all of the following four questions.

  1. Were you born outside of Canada?
  2. Did you arrive in Canada less than 5 years ago?
  3. Is your family income before tax less than the amount in the chart below based on the total number of people in your immediate family (including children)?
Family size (including children) Income before tax
1 person $24,949
2 people $31,061
3 people $38,185
4 people $46,362
5 people $52,583
6 people $59,304
7 people and more $66,027
  1. Can you confirm that you do not have significant investments or savings, nor family members or a spouse who can assist you financially with leisure expenses?

Small Discounts for All New Canadians
