CLSA Delayed Opening Decision
Due to the COVID-19 restrictions still being in place, the CLSA Board has decided not to go forward with Spring Programming in June.
All programming will be postponed until Fall 2021, with circles starting September 7 and classes on September 13. Unless the COVID situation in Alberta drastically improves before then, CLSA will not be resuming activities until it is safe to do so.
We know this is disappointing to many members, and we continue to be hopeful that most of the population will be vaccinated at that time, putting us all in a safer position to be together again.
We are grateful for your continued support to the Association and understanding during this time of great uncertainty and change. Sunny skies are ahead: making safe choices will get us there.
Membership and registration information will be available soon. Please check our website, watch your email, or call us 780–496–7369 to learn of any updates. Our staff continues to work remotely, but please call us if you have any questions or email us at info@CentralLions.org.
The user-friendly registration system will reduce foot traffic in the building and provide members, volunteers, and staff with a safe and enjoyable experience.
Visit our online registration system to confirm and update account information, purchase or renew your membership, and sign up for fall programs and activities. *Membership registration is on hold until further notice due to COVID-19. Please contact us if you need assistance.
To register for activities and circles you must have a valid 2021 CLSA Membership, which can be purchased over the phone 780–496–7369 or online through the registration system.

Low Enrolment Policy
Did you know it is program policy to cancel classes one week prior to the start date if there are not enough registrations? Early registrations result in fewer cancellations and fewer disappointments. Help our staﬀ determine which programs have suﬃcient participants by registering early.
If minimum participant registration is not met, the program will be cancelled ﬁve business days prior to the start date. You will be notiﬁed by phone, and you will be oﬀered a credit toward another class. Read more about our course cancellation policy here.
Don’t delay—sign up today!
If the activity in which you wish to register is full, you can be waitlisted. If there is a free spot available, we will contact members in the order received on the waitlist.
We encourage early registrations so that we can make adjustments to scheduling if necessary. If there is suﬃcient interest run a second course/activity (and depending on instructor or room availability) CLSA may schedule a second time slot or move to a larger room to accomodate interest and physical distancing.
Cancellations, Refunds, and Transfers
If it is necessary for CLSA to cancel a program, you will be notiﬁed prior to the program start date. In this situation, refunds or credits will be issued to your account. Courses may be cancelled due to low enrolment, extreme weather, instructor unavailability, and emergency facility maintenance.
Generally, no refunds or credits are given for programs, presentations, club, or Fitness Centre registrations unless cancelled by CLSA. In the event of an illness or injury, refund requests may be forwarded in writing to the CLSA Executive Director for review.
Transfer to another program is permitted (subject to availability) without penalty up to 15 days prior to the program start date. A $10 administration fee will apply if a transfer is requested 14 days or less prior to the program start date or if the program has started. If applicable, any credit balance will be refunded.
With winter being a significant feature of Edmonton life nine months of the year, CLSA members are reminded of our Severe Weather (Program Cancellation) Policy. CLSA Programs may be cancelled if the following conditions are met:
1. Edmonton temperatures are below -30 degrees celsius (not including wind chill) as per Environment Canada forecast for Edmonton.
2. Edmonton schools, either Edmonton Public or Edmonton Catholic, have cancelled their bus service for the day. (School bus cancellations are generally announced on local radio stations).
If in doubt, please phone Central Lions at 780–496–7369 for a recorded message. In the event of CLSA program cancellations due to severe weather, the building will remain open during regular hours from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday.
**Due to COVID-19, class previews are temporarily suspended until further notice.
If there is space available, any interested party can preview a program without having registered. This allows you to see if the level and experience in the class meets your needs. If you decide to do this, see our Front Desk first so we can ensure there is space in the class for you and so we can advise the instructor of your guest appearance.
After you preview the class, if you want to join, you will be required to register for the program. You will have to do so in person at our registration desk as all other registration options will no longer be available after a class has started.
