Community Support

The Community Resource Worker Program works to support individuals, children, youth, seniors and families in finding the supports and resources they need. We work to increase community connectivity through various programs that help people gain a sense of empowerment, independence, inclusion and community.


Recreation and transit support program for refugees and Ukrainian evacuees

In May 2022, City of Medicine Hat City Council approved a recommendation to support Ukrainian evacuees who are coming to Medicine Hat, as well as refugees settling in Medicine Hat (within the past year) in conjunction with any Government of Canada Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship program.

This means that families and individuals that qualify for the program are eligible for up to three (3) FREE Transit and three (3) FREE 31-Day Recreation passes (individual or family).
