The Kindersley Aquatic Centre will be more accessible than ever with the addition of two PoolPod Platform lift systems from a Jumpstart Accessibility Grant.

Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities announced on Aug. 1 that the Town of Kindersley has been awarded a Jumpstart Accessibility Grant for $115,000 for the installation of new innovative, accessible features at the Kindersley Aquatic Centre.

The grant will be used to help purchase two PoolPod Platform lift systems and the lifts offer most users the ability to independently enter and exit a pool. The grant is part of a new five-year program under Jumpstart’s Play Finds a Way movement. The Play Finds a Way movement is a $50 million fundraising commitment by Canadian Tire Corporation to remove barriers to sport and play.
