Refunds

Withdrawals and Cancellations

You've taken the time to register with North Vancouver Recreation and Culture, and now your plans have changed. We may be able to issue you a credit or give you a refund, depending on what you're withdrawing from and how and when you registered.

Refund Policy Changes due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) 

Our standard refund policy applies with the following temporary exception during the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • If you are not able to attend the program due to sickness, as long as you cancel prior to the start of the class, a full refund will be provided. Please contact NVRC at 604-987-7529 before the start of the class so another community member can take part.
  • If an outdoor class is cancelled due to bad weather, NVRC will contact you one hour prior to the class. Please ensure your account has a phone number you can be reached at. Call NVRC at 604 987 7529 to update your details.

Program Cancellations

Programs that do not meet the minimum number of participants may be cancelled. We encourage everyone to register early as we do provide refunds if classes are cancelled. On occasion, some classes may run under minimum but may be cancelled after the first class if they do not meet registration minimums by the end of the first class. In these cases, registrants will be charged for one class and a refund will be issued for the remaining amounts. Program cancellation decisions are usually made 1-3 days prior to the start of the program.
