The recACCESS program is intended to ensure Barrie residents have an opportunity to participate in recreation programs and activities regardless of their financial situation.
The City provides a wide range of recreation and physical activity programs. While subsidized by tax revenues from Barrie citizens, these programs often include a registration fee to offset program costs. The recACCESS program is a fee assistance program that provides support to low-income families and individuals in Barrie by providing qualifying participants with a recPASS membership, and children and youth credits that can be applied to the registration fee for qualifying programs and activities.
If you meet the eligibility requirements, please complete the form below. The recACCESS application form (PDF) is also available for pickup and drop-off at Allandale Recreation Centre, East Bayfield Community Centre, and Peggy Hill Team Community Centre.
Confirmation of status will be received within 10–14 business days. Upon approval, youth can be registered for programs using recACCESS credits.
Personal information collected for the recACCESS program is collected under the authority of the Municipal Act, 2001, Section 8, as amended, and will be used for the purpose of administering the recACCESS fee assistance program, administration of the City of Barrie’s recreation programs including registration in these programs, and for periodic mailings pertaining to recACCESS, and the City of Barrie’s recreation programs.
