How to Register for City of Greater Sudbury Leisure Programs
Register early to avoid disappointment. All programs have limited capacity. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Placement in a program is guaranteed only with full payment prior to the start of a program.
All prices listed in the Leisure Guide are subject to change. Our staff will be pleased to confirm prices at time of registration. Prices include HST, where applicable.
A Leisure Services Client Sign-up Sheet (included in this Guide) must be completed and signed prior to registering in a City program. Client Sign-up Sheets must be signed by a parent or legal guardian for participants under the age of 18.
If a program is full, you may place your name on a waiting list for future vacancies.

Program Refund Policies
Program Cancellations: Following a program cancellation, a full refund will be provided if there are no other programs which are satisfactory to the participant.
