How does the #RecreationForAll program work?
Approved applicants receive a 3-month membership at QPEC, access to RQM Aquatic Facilities or RQM programs, activities or training at a reduced cost. Participants contribute 10% of the total cost and the program covers the remaining 90%. The fee must be paid in full at the time of registration at the reduced rate. For QPEC memberships, at the end of the 3 months we will review your experience, usage and current needs to assess potential continuation in the program. Confidentiality is maintained at all times. Applicants shall not be funded more than once per year until all other applications have been exhausted and then only if funds allow.
