Demand will be high for fall and winter recreation activities – register early

It’s time to check out the thousands of classes the City of Ottawa has to offer in the 2013 Fall-Winter Recreation eGuides. Both the Recreation eGuide and Mon Cyberguide francophone des loisirs are now online at ottawa.ca.

Registration for swimming and aquafitness classes begins online and by touchtone phone (613-580-2588) Monday, August 12 at 9 p.m. and in person at City recreation facilities Tuesday, August 13 during regular business hours.

Registration for all other classes begins online and by touchtone phone Wednesday, August 14 at 9 p.m. and in person at City recreation facilities Thursday, August 15 during regular business hours.

High volumes of online registrants are expected throughout the first week of registration, particularly the first evening, which could result in a longer registration experience than usual.

Ottawa residents are encouraged to review the list of classes and registration procedures now to ensure they are ready to enrol in their favourite classes in a timely manner. Anyone registering will need a client barcode and a family PIN (Personal Identification Number).
