Leisure Access Program

Thanks to the Leisure Access Program (LAP), the Town of Blackfalds will subsidize fees for eligible individuals who are unable to pay for municipally operated programs, memberships and admissions that will contribute to their personal growth and community involvement. Through this program the quality of life and well-being of Blackfalds residents will be greatly improved; creating a strong and healthy community.
