Leisure Access Program Update
On Tuesday, July 4, 2017, The City of Edmonton will launch a new component to the Leisure Access Program, making recreation even more accessible. Based on the "sliding scale" approach, applicants with income as much as 25 percent above the low income cut-o?? may be eligible for a new
subsidized monthly pass. This pass is priced at $20/month for an individual and $70/month for a family. Additionally, income thresholds for the pre-existing Leisure Access Program were increased by 10 percent to welcome more low income Edmontonians to the free annual pass program for
access to participating recreation and attraction facilities.
