Following the recent provincial announcement, all in-person programs and services are paused as of end of business January 4, 2022. Read more...



TEMPORARY CLOSURE - All RA in-person programs, activities and services are temporarily suspended. 

The Province of Ontario has mandated that all indoor recreational and sports facilities (including the RA Centre) are to close until January 31.

During this closure, we will be operating with minimal staff on a reduced schedule and will do our best to respond to members as quickly as possible. Although there is no access to the building, Member Services will be available, Monday to Friday from 8am to 4pm by phone at 613-733-5100 and e-mail at info@racentre.com. We apologize in advance for any delay or inconvenience. 


Like you, we’ve been eagerly anticipating today’s news. While lots of information was provided through the announcement and the technical briefings attended by RA staff, there still remain many questions around the RA's January 31 re-opening. We anticipate receiving clarification from civil authorities (Province of Ontario and Ottawa Public Health) in the next few days.

Once we have a clearer understanding of what restrictions will be in place when we re-open, we will communicate the specifics of each club and activity’s return-to-play with you. Members and registered program participants can expect this communication some time next week.

Your continued patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
