A second tier has been added to the Banff Access Program so more people can access discounts and free programs.
The new tier will allow people earning up to 50% more than the Statistics Canada low income cut-off to access free and discounted programs.
The current Tier 1 provides free access to some programs and a 50% discount in other programs for a 1-person home earning $32,939 or less; 2-person home with income of $41,007 or less; 3-person home with under $50,415; 4-person home with under $61,210 in income.
The new Tier 2 provides free access to drop-in sport programs and a 25% discount on other programs for a 1-person home earning less than $39,527; 2-person homes earning less than $49,209; 3-person homes with under $60,498; 4-person home under $73,452 in income.
Currently, there are more than 400 households – or 630 individuals – who are members of the program.
