Updated October 6, 2020

Traditionally, the Town offers an extensive menu of programs and services that are promoted within our Activity Guide.  Programs will be scaled back significantly to ensure that only those services that can fully comply with all public health measures are offered.  There will be no Fall 2020 Activity Guide published.  Drop-In and limited registered programs will be introduced gradually over the next few months.  To see what drop-ins are available and to reserve your spot.


We wish to keep you informed of updates regarding Town facilities, programs and events as information becomes available. The Town will continue to take our direction from Federal and Provincial Governments and York Region Public Health in an effort to protect the health and safety of our staff and community.
