Free Aquatic Leadership pilot project to help increase  Aquatics programs 

A pilot program will launch in January offering no-cost aquatic leadership courses for swim instructors and lifeguards. Aquatics staff shortage is an issue faced by many  municipalities and through this pilot program the Town can address this shortage and improve the availability of aquatic services. The program will be effective through 2023 and reassessed before the 2024 budget process. Details will follow in the coming weeks.

Southfields seniors pilot program offers meeting space

Council approved a pilot program with the Southfields Village Seniors Group (SVSC). The program provides access for the group, if/when space is available, free of charge at the Southfields Community Centre from January to April 2023, when meeting outdoors is not an option. The SVSC is an affiliate group of the Town and is known for hosting an annual seniors’ picnic as well as gathering each day in Southfields’ neighbourhoods and community parks. SVSC is considered stewards of Wilson Park, John Clarkson Park, Snellview Park, Bonnieglen Farm Park and Dennison Park. The members help ensure the parks are maintained by cleaning up garbage and reporting maintenance issues. If the pilot is successful, it may open doors for arrangements with other groups to use Town community centres.
