What is happening with my Trico Centre Membership?

All membership payments will put on hold until reopening. No action required.


What is happening with my Kids Korner Continuous Membership?

It is Trico Centre’s primary concern to provide a healthy and safe experience for all staff, members, and visitors to the facility. To do this, we have been moving forward with a reopening in full compliance with all Alberta Health Standards (AHS) protocols, and, exceeding them where possible, to the best of our ability.

According to AHS regulations we are able to reopen all facility areas; however, we do not feel that we would be able to maintain safety and health protocols within Kids Korner childcare. Our spaces are small, our staffing limited, and the nature of caring for small children while maintaining distancing and cleaning protocols is too difficult to manage in our facility. There is too great a risk to our Kids Korner staff, the children involved, their families, and by extension, our other staff and visitors to reopen at this time. It is our intention to re-open Kids Korner in the spring or fall of 2021, depending on the status of Covid and how we feel we can manage operations.


What is your policy on refunds for canceled programs and bookings?

Programs starting in 2021 will be reassessed in the New Year. No action required.

Please note that any changes, credits or refunds required will be processed when we re-open the facility. 


Will Out of School Care still be open?

OSC Program - Will continue operating as usual.
For more information please visit our Out of School Care page or contact :

At this time, all child related programming must be divided into designated cohorts. Under the AHS guidelines cohorts are required to stay together for a designated time frame and therefore having a daily drop-in style program is not possible.


Will Trico Centre partners be open during your facility closure?

Panther Sports Medicine Clinic  open, see their website for current hours
Lifetime Smiles - open, see their website for current hours 
Massage for Health -  open, see their website for current hours
