The Town of Oakville is committed to serving the needs of the user groups and residents who wish to permit and utilize our arena facilities. A facility allocation policy is in effect to be fair and transparent and to be applied consistently and equitably to all ice users. The policy:
The actual number of hours allocated to each client is reviewed annually. Before any league development or expansion is considered, please consult with the supervisor of permitting and scheduling at 905-845-6601, ext. 3156. Supporting documents to determine a group's placement as per the facility allocation policy including group membership rosters may be requested before a permit is issued.
Permits must be signed by a contact person listed on the file over the age of 18 years as confirmation of the booking(s) and understanding of the facility rules and regulations, and permit conditions of use. For details on expected conduct and consequences for violations, please review the Acceptable Use of Town Facilities page.
Payment is required in-full or via monthly post-dated cheques at the time that the permit is signed and confirmed.
An administration charge of $40 is levied for all payments returned due to insufficient funds. Statements will be sent to customers with non-compliance payments. Future permits may be cancelled by the town.
Overdue accounts are subject to a 1 per cent per month interest charge. Accounts in arrears are sent to third party collection and the client is denied access to future facility bookings.
All permits require proof of $2 million liability insurance naming the Town of Oakville as additional insured, or $5 million for any alcohol-related events. For groups that do not have their own insurance, coverage is available through a community-based insurance program (pdf) and the extra cost will be added to permits.
To cancel a booking you must provide a written notice a minimum of 14 days prior to the date(s) affected, otherwise full costs will apply. To cancel a tournament or special event with bookings of more than eight hours during a 24-hour period, written notice must be received a minimum of 45 days prior to the date(s) affected.
Any credit balances will be refunded if requested at the end of the season.
The leasee is not permitted to exchange, give or sublet their booked time to any group or team without consent of the arena’s manager.
The town reserves the right, through its agent or agents, to cancel a room rental agreement and close any function for failure to observe all conditions of the permit, and/or retain full or portions of the damage deposit.
