Financial Assistance

Recreation centres restart on June 29. For everyone's safety, when facilities restart, there will be no drop-ins. Advance reservation is required for ALL activities and programs. To use your Recreation Credit, call the facilities  to reserve your program. Your recreation credit can be used for all activities offered at our recreation centres except for Bubble Sports Gym and Bubble Games Room.

If your Recreation Credit expired between March 18 to July 31, it remains on your account and can be used until your new Recreation Credit application is processed or September 30, 2020 (whichever comes first).

Registration - Financial

Burnaby Recreation Credit Program

Burnaby’s Recreation Credit program supports Burnaby residents in financial need. Qualifying applicants will receive a credit in our registration system that can be used at any Burnaby Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services facility for registered programs and admissions including swimming, skating, fitness classes and weight rooms. Please note: golf, private lessons, Bubble Sports Gym and Bubble Games Room are not included in this program.

To qualify for Burnaby’s Recreation Credit program, applicants must:

  • live in Burnaby
  • be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or refugee 
  • meet the Low Income criteria or be receiving Government Income Assistance 

Details and how to apply are outlined in the Application Form

Once your application is approved, you will receive a confirmation letter. As you register for programs or purchase passes, the cost of those services will be deducted from your Recreation Credit balance. Your Recreation Credit will be valid for one year, and any unused credit will be removed from your account after expiration. 

Please note: the Recreation Credit has no cash value; refunds on purchases using the Recreation credit will be returned back as Recreation Credit. You can apply for and receive Recreation Credit once per year.

More details about the Recreation Credit program can be found in our flyer.
