2019 Fall Leisure Guide
Fall 2019 Programs have been announced in the Leisure Guide!

Online registration for fall weekly programs opens Monday, August 19, at noon, and closes Friday, August 23, at noon. Please see the Fall Leisure Guide for a full list program locations and times.

Important registration reminders:

* Registration is not first-come, first-served.
Do not feel obligated to register immediately at noon on Monday, August 19.
* Due to high demand, waitlists do occur.
Don’t be discouraged. Being on a waitlist positively impacts your chances of enrolment for future seasons.
* Submit and rank registration requests for each program that you are interested in.
Submitting one program request does not increase your chances of getting into that program. Participants are encouraged to request and rank all programs and locations of interest in order to help us better identify demand.
* Registration status updates will be sent out by Friday, August 30. 
Please allow for a week for your registration request to be changed from Pending to Confirmed OR Waitlisted after the registration period is over.
