Our goal is to make our services as accessible as possible; to exclude no one.
We do this by trying to make sure that there aren’t any barriers that make it impossible or difficult for anyone to use them. Too often services are designed with the perfect user in mind. But people’s functional abilities vary.
Sight and hearing ranges from perfect to none, with a full spectrum in between.
People’s literacy levels and memory vary due to common conditions such as:
Physical ability varies with differences in:

The Gym, Health and Fitness Clubs industry in Canada has grown over the five years to 2019 as a result of consumer trends and the proliferation of public health campaigns.
With an increasing rate of adult obesity, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has stressed adherence to fitness and healthy lifestyle choices. According to the PHAC and the Canadian Institute for Health Information, obesity is expected to incur over $5.0 billion in costs each year, which must be covered by the healthcare system. In response, many health insurance companies have incentivized fitness by subsidizing health club memberships.
The NAqC will include weight rooms, indoor track, trampolines, a gymnasium as well as a growing sport in Canada – Pickleball! The aquatic support training will include many high-performance additions to the fitness programs offered for all levels of athletic capabilities.
You don’t have to be “fast” to hit the track. In fact, it can be the perfect place for newbies. It’s flat and traffic-free, and the distance is measured for you. The facility will have fitness programs, that may be age-specific and will allow you to walk, run or jog in an environment that will be very special indeed.
Conveniently located within the National Aquatics Complex (NAqC), health and wellness services will be available where people can connect with programs, facilities and information to support visitors on their path to living a healthier lifestyle.
Our wellness facilities will be a partnership with Doctors, Physiotherapists, and Nutritionists and will be available at the complex. Massage therapy and support for treating and prevention of injuries will be our focus.
The complex will have a food court serving coffee, juice, and nutritious snacks. It is our hope that we will also include retail space for athletic gear and accessories.
Early plans indicate the inclusion of on-site accommodation for visiting athletes and officials.
We plan to have our guests experience a peaceful and performance-driven environment at the convenience of resting on the same property as one of the best training venues in the aquatics’ world. We hope to have rooms equipped with access to kitchen facilities to accommodate their meal planning.
With the number of activities and special events happening at the NAqC, we hope to have limited space available for private bookings. This includes group bookings, corporate functions, birthday parties and family events. This will also be available to Aquatic organizations to host board meetings and special hospitality events during the competitions held on-site.
