IMPORTANT: We are not accepting requests for community room rentals from the public, at this time.
Updates will be posted on this page should anything change. Regulations will be re-evaluated in the New Year to explore the ability to open Community Rooms for rent.

COVID-19 Updates:

Many of the community rooms and halls, including those in arenas, the Strangway Community Centre and the Newton Centre, have been re-purposed and/or have had restricted use throughout the pandemic.

While capacity limits are starting to be lifted in many recreational facilities where proof of vaccination is required, these rooms will remain unavailable for general community rental to ensure there is capacity to respond to changes in public health restrictions, as the pandemic remains on-going and public health restrictions remain fluid.

This will remain until such time we are able to move to external rentals of all of our available spaces, with proper protocols and procedures in place, which we look forward to in the New Year!

Room Rental Information

Community Rooms are located in a number of different indoor and outdoor spaces and are rented to local organizations and the general public. Locations can be used for birthdays, bridal or baby showers, corporate meetings, City programming, and in many other ways.

Payment is due at the time of booking; we do not place holds on any community rooms. Renters will receive a permit after payment is received, which outlines the terms of use and must be signs and returned to City Hall staff. Users MUST clean up after themselves at the end of their rental, and leave the space as they found it. Pricing may be subject to an additional insurance fee.
