Register for your favourite programs in our New Registration System! Over the next couple months, the Canada Games Centre (CGC) is transitioning to a new software system. This change will align CGC’s system with other recreation centres across the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) while continuing to provide you with exceptional CGC programs and services. The online experience, MyRec, allows you to search, book/register and manage your recreation activities and programs within one account, no matter which facility you choose. To find out more about this transition, please see the MyRec Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
