Ways to register for recreation programs
Register online

First, make sure you have an online account. Have you ever registered online for a City recreation program? If so, you may already have an account. You can activate it by going to the Create/Reset Password page and entering in your email. If you already have an account, a link will be sent to your inbox to reset your password.

If you receive an error message that the email is incorrect, you'll need to set up a new online account by calling Active Living & Culture at 250-469-8800, emailing (note: new account set up requests via email may take a couple days to complete), or by visiting Parkinson Recreation Centre (1800 Parkinson Way).

There's two ways to browse and register for programs online:

  1. Find programs using the latest online guide.
    Click on the cover of the latest Activity & Program Guide at the top of this page and scroll through the online guide to find programs. Once you find one, simply click on the barcode to register! Sign in, then choose the person on your account that you would like to register in the program.
