The PEI government recognizes that participation in amateur sports like ringette, hockey, soccer, etc. provides long term health and wellness benefits that reduce health care costs and contribute to individual success. However, non-profit amateur sport organizations must pay HST on facility rentals. The HST paid must be raised via registration fees and fundraising, resulting in higher costs that make it harder for amateur sports organizations to operate, and may discourage or prevent participation.
We petition the Legislative Assembly of Prince Edward Island as follows: To be proactive in supporting the long term health and wellness of Islanders, by eliminating the HST from facility rentals to non-profit amateur sport organizations.
These signatures will be added to the petition that was started by the Rustico Ringette Board of Directors.
