Town of Milton Financial Assistance

We want to ensure that everyone in Milton has an opportunity to take part in our recreation programs.  The Town of Milton Financial Assistance program supports the opportunity for all Milton residents to take part in recreation with up to $200 annually per person to everyone who qualifies.  Applications for 2020 are currently closed until further notice and any updates will be posted on this site.

Accessing your previously approved Financial Assistance or Halton Region Recreation Subsidy

If you have already been approved for the Town of Milton Financial Assistance or a Halton Region Recreation Subsidy, it is important to know that in order for you to access your remaining subsidy allowance, you must create your own account in our new database and then contact us to have your balance downloaded.  Please find all necessary details below.

Step 1:  Set up your account using your own personal email at www.milton.ca/myaccount . Once logged in, you may then set your own unique password and upload your personal information including your family members.  We have created this “How to Create an Account” video for your reference and to guide you. After your set up is complete, you will receive an email from communications@perfectmind.com. To ensure you receive this and all future communication, we ask you to flag this address as ‘safe’ in your email settings to avoid it passing to your SPAM/JUNK folder. Should you have any questions about the new software or this process, please contact recreation@milton.ca.

Step 2:  Contact us at financialassistance@milton.ca to request the continuation of your previously 2020 approved financial assistance or recreation subsidy and we will download your remaining subsidy allowance.  Please ensure that all eligible family members have been added into your account.
