The Town of Innisfil offers the Fee Assistance in Recreation (F.A.I.R.) program to Innisfil residents facing financial barriers that prevent them from taking part in recreational activities. F.A.I.R. enhances access to municipal recreation programs by providing fee assistance to eligible participants.

Successful applicants may receive a discount of up to 25% toward Town program registration fees, with a total of $200 per year, per participant.

Eligibility

Applicants must be a resident of Innisfil to apply for the F.A.I.R. program. We strive to make our recreation programs accessible for all and we do not turn down any applicants due to an inability to pay.
