Internet registration for recreation programs popular with Toronto residents
Toronto residents embraced using the Internet to register for Parks and
Recreation's fall and winter programs. During the 10-day registration period in
September, Internet registration represented over 21 per cent of all

"The successful launch of online registration for Parks and Recreation programs
demonstrates the commitment of the City towards improving customer service and
the public's willingness to register and pay for programs online," said
Councillor Brian Ashton, Chair, Economic Development and Parks Committee. "It's
an important step in the City's e-City strategy and showcases our ongoing
commitment to enhance customer service to the public."

While the major registration period for fall and winter recreation programs is
over, there are many programs still available. Residents can continue to use
the Internet to search for program availability and register online at any
time. Internet registration has joined touch-tone, telephone-assisted,
in-person, drop-off, mail and fax as an additional method of registration for
the City's recreation programs.

Toronto Parks and Recreation offers a wide range of recreation programs for all
ages including Learn to Swim and Learn to Skate, adult fitness, youth drop-in
and senior wellness programs. During the fall and winter session, Toronto Parks
and Recreation offers more than 27,000 programs with a capacity of over 300,000
spots available for individuals of all ages.
