Adaptive Equipment Loan Program

With the recent snowfall we know there's still lots of winter left this season, and we want everyone to get out and enjoy it. We have equipment that can assist persons with disabilities to participate in recreation and leisure activities.

Adaptive equipment is available to borrow for free, to individuals who require their use: 

  • Snowcoach, available at the Winter Activity Centre
  • Sit ski, available at the Winter Activity Centre
  • Ice sledge* available in child and adult size; for use on ice
  • Hippocampe* all terrain wheelchair with front and rear ski attachments

* There is no cost to borrow this equipment but it must be booked through our Inclusive Services program staff by calling 709-576-6972 or emailing inclusion@stjohns.ca.

For more details on winter outdoor recreation opportunities and equipment rentals at the Winter Activity Centre in Pippy Park or in Bowring Park, please see our website
