JIMMY KILABUK FUND PROGRAM EXPANSION – PHASE II
DECEMBER 13, 2017 (IQALUIT, NUNAVUT) – The City is pleased to announce the expansion of the Jimmy Kilabuk Fund – Phase II, which is intended to increase participation to families who may need assistance in accessing the Aquatic Centre and its programs. Phase II provides 75 per cent fee assistance for eligible families.
Launched in memory of a former Mayor and Council member Jimmy Kilabuk, through the City’s REACH (Recreation, Environmental Leadership, Aquatic Centre, Community Building, Healthy Living) program, more than $100 thousand has been contributed so far to support the fund.
To apply, eligible residents are asked to complete an application form, that can be obtained on-line or at the Aquatic Centre’s Guest Services desk.
As the Fund continues to grow, the City will seek to broaden the parameters of this program to include all families who require fee assistance.
Donations for the Fund can be directed to Recreation Guest Services aquaticcentre@city.iqlauit.nu.ca
