Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation is thrilled to be the recipient of three
$5,000 grants from the Bell Community Sport Fund, in partnership with the True
Sport Foundation. The grants are distributed to promote access to community
hockey and soccer programs across Canada.
The City of Toronto grant program has been implemented at the Beaches
Recreation Centre to provide more opportunities for children 3-5 years of age
and to help increase access for the very popular Mini Soccer program. Over 160
participants have completed a nine week program. Deputy Mayor Sandra Bussin,
representatives from Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation and Bell Canada
will be on hand for the final games and medal presentations.
Two future programs will be implemented in the Fall. The Hockey in Your
Neighbourhood program at Elmbank Community Centre will provide an opportunity
for disadvantaged children to participate through the purchase of 20 new sets
of hockey equipment. Soccer in the City at Stephen Leacock Community Centre
will provide children 6-12 years of age the opportunity to participate in a
free community league through the purchase of equipment, uniforms and permit
The $1 million fund, announced by Bell Canada in January 2005, invests in
community hockey and soccer programs for youth across Canada.
