A heads-up for residents who wish to register for the various City of Toronto winter programs this year. Registration for our area will begin on Tuesday December 6 at 7 a.m. Here is the news release with all of the details:
The City of Toronto offers affordable community recreation programming for the winter season. Residents of all ages can register for winter skating programs, swimming programs and March Break camps.
Registration begins at 7 a.m. on Saturday, December 3 for Etobicoke/York and Scarborough Districts, and 7 a.m. on Tuesday, December 6 for North York, Toronto and East York Districts.
Residents should visit toronto.ca/torontofun prior to registration day to:
• Find out district registration dates
• Build a list of choices (program titles and barcodes) using the website or the printed FUN Guide
• Get a family number and client numbers to log in and register
• Have a payment method ready or credit on the account, if fees apply
Residents can use the “Search Programs” options at toronto.ca/funguide to build wish lists and have a few options ready in case they don’t get into their first choice.
Using the website efun.toronto.ca is the easiest and fastest way to register for winter recreation. In September, 90 per cent of users were able to log in to the registration system in less than 11 minutes and, on average, once logged in, each registration was completed in just over seven minutes.
Those who wish to register for programs will need to set up an account. Call 416-338-4386, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or speak with staff at a City community centre to get a family number and a client number, update your account information, put a credit on your account or request information on the Welcome Policy.
Welcome Policy yearly credit
The Welcome Policy credit can be used to register for City recreation programs. People receiving social assistance (Ontario Works) and living in Toronto are pre-approved to receive this credit and should speak to their caseworker. More information about the yearly credit is available at toronto.ca/wp.
Many community centres offer free recreation programs including leisure swimming and skating, and drop-in programs for children, youth and older adults. More information about free and low-cost programming options is available at toronto.ca/lowcostrecreation.
Older adult discounts
Older adults (60+ years) who register for adult programs receive a 50 per cent discount.
