Fee Assistance is Available.

Qualifying individuals receive a certain percentage off the registration fees for City of Guelph programs, swim passes or selected memberships, including the GWSA. The City of Guelph recognizes that residents living in a low income household have specific financial challenges that can reduce their access to recreation programming and activities.

The Fee Assistance in Recreation (FAIR) Program is designed to minimize these barriers by offering eligible adults and seniors the option of purchasing recreation and fitness passes, programs, memberships and activities at more affordable rates.

The City of Guelph maintains an agreement with the GWSA to provide an opportunity to adults and seniors interested in participating in City of Guelph and GWSA recreation programs and activities.
