Recreation and cultural program registrations open March 7!

City of Ottawa recreation registration opening soon!

The City of Ottawa is launching registrations for all of its spring and summer recreation programs next week:

Aquatics - Monday, March 7 @ 9pm
All other programs - Wednesday, March 9 @ 9pm

Test out the new registration system early!

Recreation registration page

Since the last registration period in the fall, the City has upgraded its system. To avoid issues signing up next week, perform this simple test:

  1. Visit the City's recreation site.
  2. Click on the green "Register" button.

If the registration page appears, you are all set to be able to register for programs. However, if it doesn't appear, you're encouraged to try on a different device or use a different internet service provider. You can also register by phone by calling 613-580-2588 when registration opens. 

Expect delays during the busy times

Registering for programs when the period first opens always means that phone lines may be busy and the registration site load times may be slow or fail due to the increased traffic. We appreciate your patience as we work to complete registrations for everyone interested. 

Have your information ready to register

Don't forget that you'll need a client barcode, as well as family PIN numbers in order to register for any City of Ottawa programs. If you don't yet have one, you can create a client account here.
