How Priority Registration Works

  • Port Coquitlam residents can begin registering on Nov 16 – at 12:01 a.m. for those registering online, and during regular facility hours for those registering by phone (604.927.7529)
  • Customers will need to provide their home address and postal code to verify they are residents of Port Coquitlam. Online registrations will be verified by Active Net account and by postal code and address combination.
  • Please note: Anyone falsely claiming to be a Port Coquitlam resident during the priority registration period will be removed from the class – even if the classes have begun.

We offer a variety of supports and resources to ensure that all residents have the opportunity to get involved in recreation programs. More information about fees and financial assistance is available at portcoquitlam.ca/recfees.
