We offer various admission rates.

In the wintertime, you can also enjoy a whirl around one of the dozens of community and neighbourhood rinks throughout the city.

New program opportunities

PickupHub is available for youth shinny! Pre-book your spot in our highly sought after shinny program. No lines, no early morning rush to the rink to ensure a spot! Just sign-up, select your dates, pay, and play.

The active living team will be offering a registered Learn to Play Hockey program to adults! Look for the program in the Winter P&A Guide.
