COVID-19 Update for October 27, 2020 : Memberships

Three options are available to members who have not yet activated their membership:

Members can reactivate their membership and return to City pools and fitness facilities.

Members may also choose to have their membership refunded, and the unused amount will be returned to them. If the refund amount is less than $25.00 they will be eligible for a credit only.

There’s a new way to register for leisure programs or book a facility. It’s easy to create an account! If you need help getting started, click here for our Frequently Asked Questions.



The French interface of our new registration system is still under development, however it is important that the City goes live with the new system as the existing registration and facility booking system is no longer supported by the vendor. Residents can still receive this service in French by calling 311 to have a French-speaking operator process bookings or registrations. The French interface will be launched in time for the fall/winter registration period.
