About the Parasport Program in Saskatchewan

ParaSport plays an important role in a healthy lifestyle and provides access to a social network and peer support.

The Parasport Sport Equipment and Club Development grants are designed to provide financial assistance for the purchase of Parasport equipment and to support Parasport club development, so more people can participate in organized sport programs in Saskatchewan.

These grants are made possible through the financial contributions from the Saskatchewan Lotteries, because, Sask Sport believes all people, regardless of ability, should be given the chance to participate in sport activities.
