Inclusion Services

Accessibility in Saanich is about enabling everyone to participate fully in our Parks and Recreation services. We envision a barrier-free community for all.

Effective immediatley, Saanich residents may apply for a Leisure Assistant Pass directly through Saanich Parks and Recreation. This pass is for people with disabilities, of all ages, who require the assistance of a support person for leisure activities. Upon presentation of the Leisure Assistant Pass at a participating venue, one support person will be given free or reduced admission. The intention is to facilitate participation, while ensuring the person with a disability does not pay double for admission. Visit any Saanich Recreation Centre, send an email to recreation@saanich.ca or phone us at 250-475-5422 to sign up.
