Recreation

Council’s goal is to offer recreation funding as an essential means for enhancing individual well-being, community vitality and economic sustainability.

At the beginning of each year, $750,000 in recreation funding is distributed to the 10 Agricultural Societies within the region. It is the Agricultural Societies' responsibility to distribute funding to organizations within the communities. The amount of funding provided to each society is based upon a formula of the percentage of the rural population applied to the total population of each community. It is Council’s belief that with funding allocations in the hands of the community’s Agricultural Society, the needs of the region will be best determined through the eyes of the citizens.

The most recent funding allocations are as follows:

Local Agricultural SocietyApproved Amount
Forestburg Ag. Society $123,175
Alliance Ag. Society $25,791
Galahad Ag. Society $17,638
Hardisty Ag. Society $94,713
Heisler Ag. Society $22,381
Killam Ag. Society $145,405
Lougheed Ag. Society $40,464
Sedgewick Ag. Society $127,026
Strome Ag. Society $33,794
Daysland Ag. Society $119,615
Total $750,000
