Registered programs are very popular and fill up fast! Many people will be registering Sunday evening, and the City sincerely thanks residents for their patience. While additional online and telephone resources are in place to make the process go as smoothly as possible, there will be thousands of people registering at once, so here are some tips to help you be prepared:

  • Ensure you have an active Leisure Online registration account and know your username and password.
  • Have a list of second and third program choices in case you do not get into your first choice.
  • Join the waiting list! Every full program has an online waiting list and new classes may be created if there is enough demand.
  • Consider other nearby Leisure Centres if your nearest location isn't available.
  • Ensure your major web browser (Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome) is up-to-date.
