Britannia's Subsidy Policy
Britannia operates a wide range of recreation programs. It is Britannia’s policy to make programs as accessible as possible to people who cannot afford to pay the full fee. Britannia would like to assist those who cannot afford the advertised cost of certain programs or activities. At the same time, our operation needs to be financially viable. The board of management has approved the following for recreation programs operated by Britannia (a person may apply for a maximum of 2 subsidies per person per season).
Please Note: Some programs do not qualify for subsidy.
- Residents of Vancouver with a Leisure Access Card may receive up to a maximum of 50% off certain programs by completing an application form and presenting it to a cashier.
- Residents of Grandview Woodland Strathcona with a Leisure Access Card may, with the approval of a programmer, receive a further discount if needed. Resident boundaries are: Broadway to the waterfront and Nanaimo to Main.
- Grandview Woodland Strathcona Residents without a Leisure Access Card may request a subsidy for certain programs up to 25% of course costs by completing an application for subsidy. For subsidies greater than 25% Grandview Woodland Strathcona residents need an appointment with a programmer and need to bring their Notice of Assessment from the previous year from Canada Customs and Revenue Agency. Resident boundaries are: Broadway to the waterfront and Nanaimo to Main.
- Residents of the city of Vancouver outside the Grandview Woodland Strathcona area without a Leisure Access Card and non-residents of the City of Vancouver are not eligible for subsidy.
