Public Service Announcement released in partnership with the City of St. Albert.

* * * * * * *

Residents of Sturgeon County and the City of St. Albert will enjoy continued access to recreational amenities thanks to a new agreement signed by both municipalities.

County residents will pay the same fee as City residents to access City recreational facilities, programs, and services. County residents can also register and enroll in the City’s recreational programs and services at the same time as City residents. The same provisions will be in place for City residents accessing County recreational facilities, programs, and services. The only exception will be swimming lessons.

As part of the agreement, which expires on March 31, 2026, Sturgeon County will provide the City of St. Albert with pre-determined funding to support existing operational costs associated with the City’s recreational services, facilities or initiatives, or existing capital costs of the City’s recreational facilities:

  • April 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024: $260,222.00
  • April 1, 2024 to March 31, 2025: $265,426.44
  • April 1, 2025 to March 31, 2026: $270,734.99

The agreement will be in place during a transition period while the County and City develop and implement a system to track resident usage of County and City recreational facilities. The tracking system will inform the development of a future funding allocation model.
