by Sarah Rossi |

COQUITLAM, B.C., March 23, 2020 – In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the City will be delaying spring recreation program registration to April 8-9.

Spring program registration (for programs running March 28 to June) was scheduled for March 25 at 6 a.m., with phone registration on March 26 at 6 a.m.

Due to the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, online registration has been delayed to April 8 at 6 a.m., with phone registration on April 9 at 6 a.m., for all program areas – including aquatics and general programs.

Currently, all of the City’s facilities, including the recreation centres are closed to the public. Consequently, there will be no in-person registration until further notice.

Program and Class Cancellations

All classes and registered programs will be cancelled until May 2.

  • For registered programs already in progress that started before March 16 and end before May 2, registrants will be issued a pro-rated refund automatically.
  • For registered programs that start after March 28 and end before May 2, registrants will be issued a full refund automatically.
  • For registered programs that start after March 28 but continue after May 2, registrants will be issued a pro-rated refund for any classes cancelled up until May 2.

Please allow up to four weeks for processing.
