Mayor John Tory is trying to reassure parents that the city will overhaul its recreational program registration process.

On Wednesday, as registration opened for spring and summer recreational programs in Toronto and East York, parents lined up outside community centres, to wait for a chance to sign up.

It was a familiar scene. On Tuesday, many parents lined up for hours outside the North York Civic Centre to enrol their children in free camp and sports programs.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Tory addressed their frustrations with the registration process, promising to “make it better.”


On Tuesday, Tory announced an overhaul of the city’s online registration process for recreational programs, saying the current system is unable to “keep up with the times.”

The mayor also said called the current registration website “ridiculous” and out of date.
