GNAG will receive grant funding from Canada Summer Jobs through Employment and Social Development Canada. We are extremely grateful for the support of the government and our federal MP, Yasir Naqvi. The funding, which we have received in the past, will again be used to integrate children and youth with special needs who require one-on-one or low-ratio support in our Summer Day Camps by hiring specialized staff. It has been an integral part of our Integration Support program, and we couldn’t be more excited to be able to continue to offer this vital service to the community. At GNAG, we believe all children of all abilities deserve to fully participate in the summer camp experience! If you have a child who may require special assistance or low-ratio support to have the best summer camp experience possible, we want to hear from you! Head to our website GNAG.ca for details.

Financial assistance for GNAG programs
GNAG is committed to ensuring that its programs and services are available to everyone in our community. While we strive to make our programs affordable, sometimes families and individuals need financial assistance to help cover costs.
Where does the GNAG subsidy fund come from? The fund is drawn directly from GNAG’s Community Development Fund, raised through fundraising. We receive no funding from municipal, provincial or federal governments for our subsidy program. GNAG has three options to participate in our recreational programs for all ages, memberships (including fitness and pottery), day camps and childcare.
We understand the cost of living is rising, making it harder to justify registering for that program you have always wanted to try or signing up for a fitness membership. The cost of summer camps adds up. GNAG’s financial assistance program can help reduce fees so that you can enjoy a program without the financial strain. The application process is very easy and confidential. For further information, go to GNAG.ca and click on JUMP TO – Financial Assistance.
