  • Your child must be between the ages of 4 - 18 and live in Saint John, Grand Bay-Westfield, Rothesay or Quispamsis.

  • Know your activity of choice, the registration deadlines for that program, the costs associated with it, and any other details about equipment or transportation before applying. Contact the program provider for more information.
  • Get your application in before the deadline for the season. Financial aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

Applicants who receive funding from P.R.O. Kids can only be in one paid recreation program at a time. Multiple applications for different seasons for a single child will not be accepted. Parents must re-apply for each activity season.
