To help slow the spread of COVID-19 and support Public Health officials, the Town of Oakville has joined the Province of Ontario and Halton Region in declaring a State of Emergency. Facilities and parks remain closed. Only essential services are being delivered.
Don't delay, register early to avoid disappointment! If you wait until the last day to register courses might get full – or great courses could get cancelled. Course availability can be found online or by telephone. Availability can only be guaranteed at time of registration.

To best service the needs of all program participants, we require every individual with a medical, developmental, or physical condition to submit a Participant Profile Form (PDF) with their registration. This information will be shared with instructional staff only.

Duplicate receipts will only be issued upon request and are subject to a $10 administration fee plus applicable taxes. An administration charge of $40 plus tax will be levied for all NSF cheques and returned payments. A non-resident fee of $10 plus tax will be added per person, per course.
Pay 50% when you register and then the remaining 50% will be automatically deducted from your credit card on June 1 for July camps and July 1 for August camps. When registering online, please check the schedule payment box to confirm your pre-authorized payment. Questions? Contact registration staff at 905-815-2000.

Similar to the process used for our customer feedback system, these reminders will be sent to customers with email addresses on their recreation account. To benefit from this service, please ensure we have your current email address on file. You can set up and check your account online at any time.
