How Priority Registration Works

  • Port Coquitlam residents can begin registering on March 9 – 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.

Advance registration and payment is required for all programs at portcoquitlam.ca/register. 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.

General Guidelines for Registered Program Access

  • Drop-in attendance is not permitted. Spots must be reserved online and participants are required to set up an account at portcoquitlam.ca/register.
  • Participants may withdraw from their session on-line up to 24 hours in advance with no penalty.
  • Registrations are non-transferable.
  • Participants will wait outside prior to the session they have registered for and leave promptly at the end of their scheduled time.

One City pass holders can now reinstate their passes for pre-registered activities by contacting recreation@portcoquitlam.ca or by phone at 604-927-7529. Passes will remain on hold during the pandemic unless the passholder requests reinstatement.

Protecting Public Health

Strict adherence to public health directives is in effect at all facilities. Measures include:

  • Registered access only and limited participant numbers for lessons, programs and activities to ensure safe distancing.
  • Hand sanitizing stations.
  • Signs, physical barriers, floor markings and one-way traffic to ensure physical distancing and to direct traffic flow.
  • One-way entrance and exit to and from facilities.
  • Masks are to be worn by everyone 12 years and up, at all times as mandated by the Public Health Officer. Children ages 3 to 11 are encouraged to wear masks.
  • Enhanced cleaning, particularly of common touchpoints such as door handles and countertops.

The city’s reopening plans will be scaled back or changed as necessary to ensure public health and comply with orders from the Provincial Health Officer.
