Update: February 18, 2021
Here is a list of questions and answers that we prepared to best address any concerns you may have :
Even if Public Health has authorized pools to open as of February 26, getting ready to reopen (hiring and training staff, preparing the pools, etc.) requires extra time.
This past fall, we came to realize that without a tangible partnership with the City, we are unable to maintain sustainable operations. Consequently and in order to preserve our financial stability while pursuing our mission over the long term, we made the difficult decision to only open the pools in Centres that have established partnerships with the City, such as the Cartierville, Du Parc and Saint-Roch Y Centres.
Although we would have preferred to open all the pools in our centres, the pandemic has hit us hard, as is true for many community organizations. We are currently limited to opening only the pools in those centers that have a partnership with the City. As a result, the Westmount YMCA pool, which does not benefit from such a partnership, will unfortunately have to remain closed.
Only open swim sessions will be available at the pools of the Cartierville, du Parc and Saint-Roch Ys on weekdays. Also, we kindly ask you to be a little more patient before booking a private lesson.
Aquatic courses and certifications, including lifesaving courses, will remain on hold until further notice. We will promptly notify you if the situation changes. Follow our FB pages!
We'd like to assure you that we are hard at work behind the scenes to do what we can to bring our campers home to Kanawana in 2021.
A Zoom Town Hall event took place on Wednesday, January 27th, at 7pm. Click here to read the transcript of the meeting.
We will run another Town Hall event in February, and again in March.
We were overjoyed to learn few days ago that day camps will open this summer! We can’t wait to welcome your campers for a summer filled with laughter and excitement!
We’re still waiting on details on the safety measures that will have to be implemented, like group sizes, the number of people allowed in each room, etc. As soon as we know more, we’ll finalize our programming and launch registration.
