The Every Kid Can Play (EKCP) Program is designed to address affordability and accessibility challenges to sport, physical activity, and recreation (SPAR) programs for Alberta kids and their families.

Alberta families can apply for up to $350 per child to offset registration fees, through funds directed to KidSport Alberta.

Through 2 grant application processes with the Government of Alberta, for Provincial-Scope organizations and Community-Level non-profit organizations, funding is available for non-profit organizations to reduce costs associated with the delivery, expansion, or enhancement of existing community-level programs.
