How this impacts Registered Recreation Programs

Effective January 5, 2022 at 12:01 AM, the province will be temporarily moving into Step Two of the Roadmap to Reopen with modifications

The Government of Ontario has made additional health measures for the province to help stop the spread of COVID-19. The province will be temporarily moving into Step Two of the Roadmap to Reopen with modifications


These measures are in effect starting on Wednesday, January 5, 2022 at 12:01 AM for at least 21 days (until January 26, 2022), subject to trends in public health and health system indicators.


The measures include, but are not limited to:

  • Reducing social gathering limits to five people indoors and 10 people outdoors.
  • Limiting capacity at organized public events to five people indoors.
  • Closing indoor meeting and event spaces with limited exceptions but permitting outdoor spaces to remain open with restrictions.
  • Closing indoor sport and recreational fitness facilities including gyms.

The following outlines how registered recreation programs are affected during this time:

  • 2002 Winter indoor programs will be postponed while recreation facilities are closed. 
  • 2022 Winter indoor programs with an end date before January 26, 2022 are cancelled. 
  • Virtual and outdoor programming can continue without disruption.

Recreation staff have been working hard to move some of our programs virtual so that they can continue. Participants will be notified if their program is offered virtually and will have the option to continue or withdraw. 

Participants will receive a refund to the original form of payment for cancelled classes with an end date before January 26, 2022. Refunds will be issued 7 days after the cancellation has been processed.  

To get an update on the status of your refund, please contact the Contact Centre at 905.477.5530 or

Residents are encouraged to visit to register for virtual and outdoor programs as well as virtual fitness classes to stay active, social and engaged during these difficult times.

The City of Markham continues to follow advice from public health officials at the regional, provincial and federal levels. The health and safety of our visitors, community and our staff remains our number one priority as we navigate the pandemic, together.

Thank you for your ongoing patience and support.

We’re all in this together!
