As of Sept 22 , 2021 the Ontario Government implemented a series of new
requirements in order to enter our facilities.
For more information please

Beginning September 22, 2021, the Ontario government requires visitors to certain municipal facilities (e.g. recreation facilities, fitness centres, theatre, indoor event and meeting spaces) to be fully vaccinated and show proof of COVID-19 vaccination.


To enter, visitors must:

·         Show proof of COVID-19 vaccination (print or digital)

·         Show valid ID (e.g., health card, driver’s licence)

·         Complete contact tracing and COVID screening measures, for which your
          permit holder will be responsible for.


Note: Additional health and safety measures are in place once inside, including face covering/mask requirements and physical distancing. If you are feeling unwell, please do not visit a facility.



Proof of vaccination is not required for the following:

·         Youth under the age of 18 actively participating in an organized sport, including training, practices, games and competitions, including sports leagues, organized pick-up sports. Spectators of Youth Sport are NOT exempt.

·         Dance classes

·         Martial arts

·         Swim classes

·         Children under the age of 12


Medical Exceptions

Individuals who cannot receive the vaccine due to medical exemptions are required to present identification and appropriate written documentation from a physician or registered nurse stating the individual is exempt for a medical reason.

Parents/guardians, spectators ages 12 and over and all other visitors who do not meet the exemption criteria above must provide proof of vaccination and show ID before entering. Where adult participation and/or supervision is required, the adult accompanying the individual must show proof of vaccination and ID before entering. All visitors, regardless of exemption, must still complete contact tracing and COVID screening measures before entering and must adhere to other health and safety requirements when inside the facility.


Where applicable, you are encouraged to speak with your sports leagues and governing sport organizations for any additional requirements they may have implemented.

The health and safety of our staff and visitors is a priority for the City. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
