As the province begins to gradually ease restrictions on January 31, 2022, the Town of Oakville is ready to welcome residents back to our facilities with health and safety measures in place.
Following the province’s announcement on January 20 that restrictions will be lifted gradually, the Recreation and Culture department plans to resume some programming starting January 31. Memberships that were paused have been reactivated to allow for bookings. Spaces are limited and pre-registration is strongly recommended.
The Recreation and Culture department is collaborating with Kerr Street Mission, YMCA of Oakville, Oakville Public Library, and many more to provide daily virtual engagement via Instagram for Oakville youth.
One post will be shared* daily on our No Days Off Oakville account. Follow us for great activities and suggestions like fun workout sessions, virtual programs and tech for teens.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many youth are experiencing changes to their usual school routines. For most students, school now involves an independent virtual learning component.
Youth requiring additional support with navigating virtual learning are encouraged to contact email@example.com .
To further support youth during this time, community service providers are working together to offer FREE youth study spaces with access to Wi-Fi and computers (please bring your own headphones).
Spaces are limited and must be pre-booked. Attendees will need to complete a health screening questionnaire and wear a mask.
Please note: We are not offering volunteer opportunities for youth at this time.
