Services for Persons with a Disability
Persons with a disability are invited and encouraged to participate in all Community Services-sponsored programs offered within the Leisure Guide. Every effort will be made to provide a positive recreation experience.
View the current Leisure Guide.
Whenever possible, please provide a family member or caregiver to assist the person with a disability in their class. If not possible, please email us to request an attendant. Every effort will be made to provide assistance for a participant in a Leisure Guide program, other than aquatic programs. No toileting services are provided.
Caregivers Accompanying Participants
Admission and registration fees will be waived for caregivers, teachers and workers accompanying people with a disability that require assistance or support during their visit to a facility or program.
Sign Language Interpreter Request
You must be registered in a Leisure Guide program before you can request an interpreter. Please note: this is only for American Sign Language. We do not supply a language interpreter.
In accordance with the City of Winnipeg Sign Language Interpreter Policy, the interpreter is paid for by the Community Services Department.
To request a sign language interpreter:
- Email your request
- Please include the name of the participant and the course in which they are registered.
- You will be contacted prior to the start of the course to confirm your request.
Note: If you have arranged for an attendant/interpreter and your class is cancelled or you are unable to attend, please contact 311 immediately to advise. If no notice is given, and an attendant/interpreter goes out on more than one occasion, your next request may not be processed.
