Admission & Membership

How is your membership affected during COVID-19 closure?

In following the Province of Alberta Relaunch strategy,
the Abbey Centre - deemed a recreational facility - remains closed.

We are planning for the best case scenario to open as soon as the Province of Alberta launches stage 3 of their relaunch strategy.

Please visit the COVID-19 webpage for more information.

Abbey Centre Memberships

  • Active monthly memberships will have the total closure time added to their membership OR the membership holder may contact Guest Services and ask for a prorated refund. 
  • Active annual memberships will have the total closure time added to their membership.
  • Active annual memberships that pay monthly to their credit card may have their June 28 payment deferred to the end of their membership year. Please contact Guest Services before June 26 to request this option.  Once you request this option no further action is required to have subsequent months deferred.  Once you are on the deferred list each month we are closed will be deferred until we re-open.

With the purchase of a membership, you will be granted unlimited access to the Fitness Centre, Outdoor Aquatic Centre, Running Track, Indoor Play Space, Drop-In Fitness Classes, Registered Fitness Classes that have a drop-in option and daily (M-F) drop-in activities in the Field House.
