As a result of these restrictions, the Bobby Orr Community Centre has altered its services to comply with provincial legislation.  The following changes will take effect as of January 5, 2022:

  • The Bobby Orr Community Centre will be closed to the public.
  • Recreation programming will be postponed until further notice.
  • All indoor meetings and events booked at the Bobby Orr Community Centre will be cancelled or rescheduled.
  • All ice usage at the Bobby Orr Community Centre will be postponed until further notice.

These restrictions will be in effect at the Bobby Orr Community Centre until new direction is given by the province that allows the facility to be safely reopened.
