Updated Thursday, January 7, 2021:
To support the provincial public health measures and restrictions on indoor gatherings the Centre remains closed to the public until further notice.
The following adjustments have been made for 2021 Memberships:
All valid 2020 memberships purchased from January to March last year will automatically be rolled over into 2021 memberships. Memberships that were purchased from September to December will be credited to your account. Reciprocal memberships that were purchased will also be credited to your account.
New 2021 55+ memberships will be available for purchase in March for a pro-rated annual fee of $25, Under 55 memberships will be available at a pro-rated fee $50, and Community Memberships (Reciprocal Memberships) will remain $5.
Please check our website, watch your email and call us 780–496–7369 to learn of any updates as we try to remain flexible and responsive to the measures required to keep us safe and healthy during this pandemic.
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 new online registration system to confirm and update account information, purchase or renew your membership, and sign up for spring programs and activities when registration resumes in March.
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.

Reciprocal members (i.e. those with memberships at any of our reciprocal centres) must register in person at Central Lions Seniors Centre to qualify for the members' rates on our programs. Proof of reciprocal membership is required.
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 ans 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.
