What is ActiveAssist? ActiveAssist is a fee-assistance program designed to help low-income families and individuals in Mississauga participate in Recreation and Culture programs. Confidentiality is always maintained. This assistance is given in the form of a credit to your Recreation account.

How much do I get? Once your application is received and approved your account will be activated. Each family member on your application will receive a credit of $275 which is valid for one year. You will receive an approval letter with account activation and registration information. You may apply for and receive the credit once per year.

NEW fee assistance is available for newcomers with refugee status. For information and to apply bring confirmation of Permanent Residency and Permanent Address to a community centre.

The credit has no real cash value.
Any refunds from cancelled or withdrawn programs will be returned to your account as a credit. Any unused credits remaining at the end of your enrolment period can not be carried over or transferred to another individual or family member or redeemed for cash.


Everyone should be able to participate in recreation as it brings communities together and improves lives. Recreational and cultural programs provide opportunities for you to have fun, reduce your stress level, increase your energy level, express your creativity, learn new skills and meet new people.
