Are Companions required to register/reserve space or pay?

When accompanying a paying and/or registered patron with a disability, when assistance is required to participate, a Companion will not be charged program fees.

  • When providing support prior to, during, or after a program, the Companion will not be charged the usual registration and/or attendance fee.
  • This may occur in, but not limited to, swimming, ice skating, tennis, and other types of recreation opportunities. 
  • At times, there may be additional expenses outside of the program registration fee (i.e. mealtimes) that will be the responsibility of the Companion.
