Before you begin

Register Ottawa is the City of Ottawa's new activity listing and registration system. Expect to see a new interface where you can browse for activities, bookmark your interests to a wish list and register online. 

Your barcodes and PIN numbers from the old system will no longer work.

All first-time users of Register Ottawa will be required to create a new account. There are two exceptions: 

  • residents who have a current City of Ottawa fitness membership,  
  • participants of the Hand in Hand financial assistance program. 

You are strongly encouraged to create your new account and browse the offerings prior to the start of next season's registration.

  • Registration dates begin online at 9 pm for each season (winter, spring, summer, fall) and remain open throughout the session.  
  • In-person registration is available by visiting a  recreation facility  or  client service centre the next morning. 
  • Activity options may be browsed in advance of the registration start date on Register Ottawa
  • Registration is open to residents of the City of Ottawa and non-residents for an additional fee. 
  • You will need a credit card (Visa, Mastercard or American Express) to register online.
