CARI and COVID Update:
Thank you to all our patrons and tenants for your patience as we continue to follow the COVID 19 directives, as provided by our Public Health Authority. We are working hard to use this unplanned and extended closure of the Bell Aliant Centre for your ultimate benefit, carrying out deep cleans, painting, and launching major capital projects such as resurfacing the Arena Parking Lot and working on a needed dehumidification retrofit for the Aquatics Complex.
Please see the following for an update on the different areas of the complex:
Arena Operations Notice: We will welcome the return of the Andrews Hockey Growth Program on June 15th, with the use of one sheet of ice in the MacLauchlan Arena so that our anchor tenant can carry out a modified summer program. Please note that neither CARI nor Andrews’ Staff will be accepting any other ice rental requests until further notice.
Aquatics Operations: We will not be reopening the Aquatics Complex before September 1st with a further announcement later this summer. This is due primarily to the decision to carry out a significant capital project starting this summer. As such, we can avoid a possible emergency shutdown in the future, from a mechanical failure of the system and get this work completed more efficiently and affordably in an unoccupied space.
Daycamp Operations: Given the current requirements around social distancing and the fact that we will not be able to offer aquatics activities in our camps, we have determined that we will not be offering daycamps at this time. This decision may be reviewed later in the summer, should circumstances change
Administrative Note: All current registrations for summer 2020 daycamps will automatically be refunded in the coming days. Aquatic memberships will continue to be placed on hold until the facility re-opens.

Are you ready for a refreshing change?
Try any of our 5 Aquafit classes.
Physical conditioning obtained by using water as resistance. Muscles will be toned and strengthened without the aches and pains sometimes experienced after exercising on dry land. Swimming skills are not necessary, but participants should feel comfortable in water and be prepared to get wet including their hair.
The Bell Aliant Centre and UFIT Inc. have joined forces to offer UFIT AQUA. Based on UFIT’s philosophy of freedom and acceptance, twinned with the benefits of using water as resistance; at the surface it may look like any other aqua fitness class. But it isn’t. You’ll get an amazing workout and leave feeling energized, refreshed and motivated. No swimming skills necessary – participants can enjoy the class from the leisure pool being anchored on the floor or suspended in deep water using an aqua fitness belt. Stop by for a splashing good time!
A deep water class for people that want to run in the water! You do a combination of jogging/walking in the water to stay at your target heart rate. Great for people that don’t want to worry about coordination and it offers a great core workout.
This is a variety class to get you moving bright and early! Jump in the pool and get your entire body moving in a variety of ways to start your day off well!
Known as the Zumba® “pool party,” the Aqua Zumba program gives new meaning to the idea of an invigorating workout. Splashing, stretching, twisting, even shouting, laughing, hooting and hollering are often heard during an Aqua Zumba class. Integrating the Zumba formula and philosophy with traditional aqua fitness disciplines, the Aqua Zumba class blends it all together into a safe, challenging, water-based workout that’s cardio-conditioning, body-toning, and most of all, exhilarating beyond belief.
Exercises, like walking or running, can be painful for arthritic joints. Aqua Arthritis can help optimize flexibility and range of motion by targeting all the joints.
It’s Low Impact.
It Can Ease Pain
It Can Reduce Swelling.
It’s Great Resistance Training.
It’s Good For Your Heart.
It Can Help With Mobility.
You Can Do it Year Round.

About the Bell Aliant Centre
Welcome to the Bell Aliant Centre
The Bell Aliant Centre is a multiuse recreational facility established in 2004, through the collaboration of the City of Charlottetown, Town of Stratford and University of Prince Edward Island, to satisfy the Greater Charlottetown Area’s need for additional ice surfaces, an updated pool, and a dedicated facility for the Seniors Active Living Centre. This 160,000 plus square foot facility is conveniently located on the campus of UPEI and has become a premiere hosting venue of World, National and Provincial tournaments, with the distinction of being the most active recreational facility on Prince Edward Island.
The Bell Aliant Centre features one of the most functional recreational setups in Atlantic Canada, with its two official NHL sized ice pads – MacLauchlan Arena, a 25-meter 8 lane competition pool, leisure and toddler pool, hot tub, accessible change rooms, waterslide and diving boards.
The centre has 3 community rooms including a board room and a fully licensed hospitality suite. The centre houses five private tenants, including the renowned Andrews Hockey Growth Program, the Seniors Active Living Centre, Frizzell’s Skate Sharpening, the University of Prince Edward Island’s Fitness Centre and a Subway restaurant.
The Bell Aliant Centre is home to numerous community-based groups that offer programming and sporting opportunities in the health & wellness sector. At present, our aquatics facility is home to the Charlottetown Bluephin Aquatic Club; Synchro PEI, UPEI Varsity Swim Team and the Charlottetown Adult & Master’s Swim Club. The MacLauchlan Arena is home to the Charlottetown Minor Hockey Association, Sherwood-Parkdale Rural Minor Hockey Association, Charlottetown Ringette Club, UPEI Men’s & Women’s Panther Hockey teams, Charlottetown Islanders Major Midget Team and 11 adult recreational leagues.
Ensuring customer satisfaction is a priority at the Bell Aliant Centre. We do so with high quality, innovative recreational opportunities that are reflective of community needs and interests. We believe in creating and sustaining an environment that promotes health and wellness and bring that philosophy to everything we do.
