The City of Fort Saskatchewan Tourism Hosting Grant provides funding to local non-profit organizations to host events brought into the city that will demonstrate economic benefits through increased tourism and profile the city at an international, national or provincial level. These events should encourage cultural, recreational, artistic or social development in the city and are a value to the citizens of Fort Saskatchewan.
Qualifying events must have an impact upon city facilities and businesses (physical, economic spinoff) for a minimum period of 24 hours. This would include hotel stays, restaurant meals, the event itself, post event celebrations, etc. The event must take place within a 12 month period from the day the grant is approved and a final report to be submitted within 90 days of the event completion. Grant applications are approved for one-time events and will not form part of ongoing operating or capital budgets. Grant applications awarded will be published on the City’s website at least once in the calendar year.
