With an eye on Fall activities, City Recreation Department offers up a few ideas

As we head towards the homestretch of summer and the start of fall activities, the City of Prince Rupert's Recreation Department has released is Fall Active Living and Community Resource guide, the helpful review of the programs and activities that are offered through the Recreation Centre.

The fall guide book was delivered to homes over the last week or so with the thirty page resource providing background information on how residents can access those activities at the Earl Mah Aquatic Centre and the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre.

When it comes to the fall activities at the recreation complex the guide features programs for the Civic Centre, Aquatic Centre, Climbing Wall and Arena.

Civic Centre programs sports and others -- 33 programs listed
Earl Mah Aquatic Centre -- 14 programs listed
Fitness Centre -- 3 programs listed
Climbing Wall -- 3 programs listed
Arena -- 18 different ice availabilities listed per week
(outside of use by PRMHA,  Prince Rupert Skating Club, etc)

Local groups also provide their registration information as part of the content, with many groups taking out larger notice space as part of the guide.

Among them:

Prince Rupert Minor Hockey 
Prince Rupert Minor Softball 
Prince Rupert Racquet Association
Prince Rupert Skating Club
Rupert Rapids
Prince Rupert Library
Success by Six Program
Last Minute Market
Prince Rupert Seniors Centre Association
Emergency Social Services
Prince Rupert Special Events
Lester Centre for the Arts
KidSport Prince Rupert
Recreation Access Program

The Recreation and Community Resource guide also makes note of the current shutdown's in place for the Earl Mah Aquatic Centre, as well as the reduced hours of operation for the Fitness Centre while renovations to the complex continue.  It's expected that the work will be completed in October.

The Recreation Department also advises as to the annual Community Registration evening for Prince Rupert, which is set for Thursday, September 13th this year. 

That one stop option for residents of the community will take place from 5 to 7:30 and brings many of the city's sports and community groups together at the Civic Centre to provide more information and take registration for their programs for the fall and winter.

The guide also calls attention to the need for Volunteers to the Emergency Social Services program in the city, the current call is for volunteers that may have Level 1 response training.

They attend to local emergencies where evacuations have occurred and ensure that residents are set up to receive the necessary social services that are available.

Should you have an interest in lending your help to the local Emergency Social Services program you can get more information by contacting them at

More on the program can be reviewed here.
