Community Support Programs

We offer a number of Community Support Programs to help improve and enhance the quality of life for our residents. 

Our Childcare Subsidy provides child and day care support to eligible families who are not covered by the Provincial Childcare Subsidy, while our Home Support Program provides support for seniors and disabled members of the community. Organizations within the County may also apply for Family and Community Social Services (FCSS) Grants, to help with providing educational resources and social services, based on the provincial requirements. 

We also offer an annual Christmas Hamper Program alongside our valued community partners, to provide meals and gifts to Saddle Hills County families over the holiday season. In collaboration with local food banks, we ensure that no donations go to waste.

We also offer a variety of Grants and Bursaries, from Student Bursaries to Program and Activity, Capital, Operating, Cemetery, and Community Sign Grants. The Agricultural Services Board has also recently launched the Veterinary Medicine Bursary Program to help fill the gaps in veterinary care in our rural communities.

Subsidies also include the Water Cistern Subsidy, Remote Potable Water Hauling Subsidy, and Residential Security System Grant to help residents with specific issues relating to their homes and properties. 

For more information on any of the Grants, Bursaries, and Community Supports offered, please contact our FCSS Department at or call (780) 864-3760.
