Moving Forward with Arena Capacity
As on Monday, October 25, the Province of Ontario is removing all capacity restrictions for recreation facilities. 


All patrons entering a recreation facility are still required to:

 - Wear a face covering at all times except when engaged in sport or physical activity

 - Proof of vaccination with ID if over the age of 12 except for those aged 12-18 who are entering a recreation facility for the sole purpose of actively engaging in youth organized sport

 - Complete the Facility Entrance COVID-19 wavier.

We are still encouraging all user groups to limit the arrival of their participants to 20-30 minutes prior to their start time to help with the congestion that will occur at the screening desk.

Please be patient with our screening staff, the removal of the capacity limits will result in additional spectators/parents/guardians entering the facility which could result in longer line ups.

To help with the process, please encourage all of your participants and parents to arrive with the required documentation completed and ready to show the screener. 

Arena Users

This means that there is no capacity restriction in the change rooms. All participants are required to wear a face covering until they put their helmet on or enter onto the playing surface.

User groups are asked to still vacate the dressing rooms 15 minutes after the end of their rental to provide staff with time to clean the dressing rooms prior to the arrive of the next booking.

The entrance and exit process at Rotary Place will remain the same.

The entrance and exit process at Brian Orser Arena will change, participants and spectators are permitted to enter and exit through the main doors.

Showers will be available to ice users.   Staff are working to turn the showers back on so it may take about a week or so for the showers to be functional again.
