Access & Inclusion

Recreation Oak Bay is committed to providing community programs, services and facilities that reflect our on-going pursuit of providing meaningful and inclusive opportunities for everyone.

Programs and services aim to eliminate barriers and create social, physical and economic environments that enable all residents to participate actively in the community.

Leisure Assistant Pass

District of Oak Bay residents may now apply for a Leisure Assistant Pass directly from Recreation Oak Bay. The Leisure Assistant Pass is for people with disabilities, of all ages, who wish the assistance of a support person when engaging in recreation and leisure activities in Greater Victoria. Upon presentation of the Leisure Assistant Pass at a participating venue, one person will be given free or reduced admission to provide assistance to facilitate participation in recreation and leisure activities. The Leisure Assistant Pass ensures that supported participation does not cost more than general admission fees. For more information, please contact reception at 250-595-7946 or visit recreation.oakbay.ca.
