Funding

Discover the different options offered through the Accessibility Program. 

Through its Accessibility Program, the Fondation Tremplin Santé offers financial assistance so that kids ages 5 to 16 from communities with a high deprivation index can participate in recreation activities that promote the adoption of healthy habits (HH). The Accessibility Program has two components: financing for HH projects, and vacation grants.

Financing for HH projects

This program allows Power Up member camps to implement original projects on HH and thereby give vulnerable kids opportunities to adopt healthy habits during the summer period. 

Project submissions must be developed by communities with kids living in zones with a high Social and Material Deprivation Index. Some 83 HH projects have received financing since the program was launched in 2015. 

Vacation grants – not available this year

This program aims to finance camp stays for 5- to 16-year-old kids from disadvantaged communities. Some 522 grants have been allocated throughout Quebec since the program was launched.

Thank you for helping us promote HLH with youth from disadvantaged communities.

La Clémentine Gabrielle-Roy day camp, Ottawa – Nature of the project: Physical activity

“Playing basketball with a ball that doesn’t bounce is no fun. With quality equipment the campers enjoy shooting hoops.”
