Contact our Recreation Service Advisor at 705-444-2500 x3382 for more information.

Program Registrations - Create Your New Account

IMPORTANT:  Be sure to click the link above to create your account or to update your login credentials so that you are prepared to register for swim times when they become available.  The swim times will be posted in PerfectMind beginning Friday, September 4th at noon.  A schedule for September is posted below (Re-opening Schedule).  Registration for swim time slots will be available 72 hours in advance.  Due to limited staff resources, you must arrive 10 minutes before your registered swim time, as the lifeguard screening at the door will need to be at their station when the swim begins.

For the safety of all participants and staff, please note the following changes:

  • Bather loads have been decreased
  • A mask must be worn at all times within the building, except when in the pool
  • Change rooms and lockers will NOT be available.  Please arrive dressed for your swim and leave your valuables at home.
  • PFD's will NOT be available at the pool.  Participants can bring their own flotation device, however only those with Transport Canada, Canadian Coastguard or CSA approval will be permitted

**Social distancing must be observed before, during, and after swims

 

Admittance Policy Updated:

We have new safety measures in addition to our existing admission standards.
