The Recreation Program coordinates with other FLMS departments and, among other things, plans and looks after parks and beaches in our community and also manages recreation and cultural activities for settlement residents.
Culture, Recreation & Parks provides funding to resident members, including individuals and groups, to participate in events and programs on or off the Settlement. Eligible events include organized sports and gym use fees for the Fishing Lake Lakeview gym.
Individuals may receive a maximum of $350 up to twice a year. An additional $500 may be awarded for excellence, at the discretion of the Community Programs Director. Participating in provincial try-outs is an example of excelling.
