City of Port Coquitlam - Leisure Buddies


Do you enjoy taking part in recreation programs? If you’ve had a recreation experience that made a difference in your life, whether it was a summer camp or a sports program, you can understand why we want to make these programs accessible to people of all levels of ability. By becoming a Leisure Buddy, you can help those who are not able to attend a camp on their own by providing supervision, support and guidance.

Leisure Buddies provide one-on-one support to a participant to help them succeed in recreation programs. While each individual is unique, this can often involve tasks such as helping them to focus on a task, encouraging them to participate in activities, providing additional instruction or reminders, and accompanying them out of the room if they are feeling over-stimulated. Leisure Buddies will never be responsible for providing personal care to participants, such as toileting, assisting with changing, or administering medications.

All Leisure Buddies will be provided with training and resources to help their buddy be successful. For more information about the Leisure Buddies program, please contact Winnie Lai at leisurebuddies@portcoquitlam.ca
