Sign up for Toronto camps and rec programs to get massive overhaul

If you've ever tried to sign up for a City of Toronto camp or recreation program, you've likely been disappointed. Just ask parents, who, as CP24 reports, lined up for hours in front of the North York Civic Centre to enroll their children in city-run activities. Apparently, they thought this was a better alternative to registering online.

But no longer. Today, Mayor John Tory announced plans to overhaul the antiquated and inefficient registration system.

"Our recreational programs are vital to our city's health, but the technology used to register for these programs has not kept up with the times," said Mayor Tory.

"I know how frustrating this can be and our goal is to modernize this process so that this important programming can be offered smoothly and efficiently, and our staff resources and time are used effectively."

The City has established a three person committee to lead this project and is asking for feedback via its website and through social media with the hashtag #TOrec.
