Sport can play an important role in the lives of people with a disability by being part of a healthy lifestyle and providing access to a social network and peer support, while developing self-discipline and positive self- esteem. Sask Sport Inc. is investing in these programs because we believe all people, regardless of ability, should be given the chance to participate in sport activities.

Since Saskatchewan has the second-highest rate in Canada of people who live with a disability at 14.5%, Sask Sport Inc. created the Parasport Sport Equipment and Club Development Grants. These grants provide financial assistance for the purchase of Parasport equipment and to support Parasport club development so more people with disabilities can participate in organized sport programs in Saskatchewan.

Active or Affiliate members of Sask Sport Inc. are eligible to apply for support, but in addition, member organizations may partner with local or community organizations/clubs to further develop capacity for Parasport programming in the province.

Application Deadline:
April 15th and October 15th of each year.

    Parasport Sport Equipment Grant
    The costs of specialized equipment for people with a disability in sport is a significant barrier to their participation. This new grant program will assist in the purchase of adapted equipment which meets manufacturer’s qualification standards for disabled sport participation/competition.

    Parasport Sport Club Development Grant
    The costs of starting new sport clubs for people with a disability at the community level is high. This program is designed to support new developmental programs in communities or the expansion/enhancement of existing programs (e.g. integration of athletes with a disability in programming, new age categories). In either case the goal is to increase participation opportunities for people with a disability. The grant can be used to offset barriers such as facility rental, coach development and transportation. The maximum eligible support is up to $5,000 per year per program application. Grant recipients will be eligible to apply for additional funding in subsequent years. Initiatives can be funded for up to three years, but the maximum eligible amount to a specific Club development initiative is $10,000 over three years. The grant is designed to support the development and implementation of community sport programs and compliment the Parasport Equipment Grant program.
