While we continue to evolve and adapt to current challenges of COVID-19, the Fall 2020 digital Leisure Guide will reflect our part in helping slow the spread of COVID-19 with residents' health as a priority. 

Making it more affordable for residents, fall programming will be split into two sessions with the first session starting on Monday, Sept. 21. Program registration will open on Tuesday, September 8 for residents, so be sure to sign up for your favourite programs early! Fall programs will be listed in the Digital Leisure Guide and will then be available on stcatharines.ca/ePlay when registration opens.
