Lace’Em Up (link https://laceemup.ca/our-program/)

The Lace’Em Up Foundation for Kids provides financial assistance to low-income children across Canada. The grants help offset hockey registration costs with the goal of increasing youth hockey participation rates and reducing the financial burden on families. The foundation will cover up to a maximum of $1000 per child for approved applications.

For a greater chance of approval, it is best to submit an application as soon as you register for hockey, as applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis as we have limited funds.
