Affordable Access Policy

The City of Elliot Lake recognizes and promotes the full participation of all Elliot Lake residents in recreation and cultural programs and transit services regardless of financial circumstances. In an effort to deliver programs that are affordable, inclusive and responsive to need, the City has developed the Affordable Access Policy. The Policy provides reduced rates to select City operated programs and facilities to qualified residents based on income.

Persons with a household income below LICO will be issued an identification card (known as the "Access Card") to be presented when registering for recreation programs or purchasing conventional transit passes. Presentation of the "Access Card" and identification will entitle cardholders to discounted prices for select municipal programs and transit as set out in the User Fee By-Law.

Other options are available for individuals experiencing difficulty paying the non-subsidized portion of the user fee. Options may include staggered payments and/or a referral to external financial assistance programs (e.g. Canadian Tire Jumpstart).

To discuss this program, to learn about qualifications or to apply, visit or contact City Hall.
