New Ways to Access the Comox Valley Recreation Guide

Fall Recreation Guide
Type
News Release
Date

With more and more people using online options for recreation program lookup and registration, Comox Valley recreation departments are changing how the quarterly Comox Valley Recreation Guide is distributed.
Instead of distributing to every household, the Recreation Guide will be available for pick-up at your local recreation centres, at various community locations, and online starting with the Fall 2022 Recreation Guide. The fall guide will be published Wednesday, August 10 with registration starting Monday, August 15.
“We checked in with the community through surveys in 2020 and again in 2021 asking how they get their information about recreation programs, said Ryan Parton, Cumberland’s Interim Manager of Recreation. “In that time there was a big increase in the percentage of people who said they got their recreation information online. We also heard loud and clear that many people still loved having a printed guide, and wanted to keep it.”
“By shifting to pick-up instead of distributing to every household, we can ensure that those who want a printed guide can get one at any of the convenient local pick-up locations, while reducing the total environmental footprint of the guide,” continued Parton. “We estimate that cutting back on the number of printed copies will save around 25,000 pounds of paper every year.”
Recreation Guides will be available for pickup at local recreation centres, as well as libraries, grocery stores, and North Island College. For a full list of pickup locations click here
