City of Regina Offering Winter Programming in Response to COVID-19
In response to COVID-19, the City of Regina is launching the Winter Programming Initiative to deliver enhanced winter programming in support of the physical and mental wellbeing of Regina residents in these challenging times.
“Our goal is to provide even more safe and accessible activities to residents this winter,” said Diana Hawryluk, Executive Director, City Planning & Community Development, “With the help of the community applying for our grant program, as well as additional activities and programming offered by the City, we will be able to provide a wide variety of activities for enjoyment by all ages, skill levels and abilities at no-cost or low-cost.”
The City of Regina is offering a $25,000 micro-grant program that will be administered through the Community Investment Grants Program. Grants will range from $500 to $5,000 and will be awarded to help fund winter programs and activities throughout the community. Visit Regina.ca/wintergrants for full information and how to apply.
Details are being finalized to enhance winter sport, recreation and cultural activities offered by the City. For example, there will be one-of-a-kind programming for seniors who have been isolated as a result of COVID-19. All activities will align with provincial health orders and are subject to change; however, residents can expect to see indoor activities and additional outdoor recreation facilities such as crokicurl sites and increased availability to warm-up shacks at outdoor ice locations.
Information on additions to recreation programming and facilities, will be updated shortly at Regina.ca/winterfun. We encourage you to use the hashtag #YQRWinterFun to help spread the word about recreation opportunities for winter 2021!
