There is a very high demand for the Swim Test as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to add more dates as they come available so please continue to check this page for updates. We appreciate your patience. 

We currently have the following Swim Test time available: 

 
 

Swim Test location: 

Earnscliffe Recreation Centre
44 Eastbourne Drive
Brampton, Ontario
L6T 2B2

As of September 22, 2021, proof of vaccination status is required to gain admission to City of Brampton Recreation Centres. 

The Ontario Government has announced that individuals must be fully vaccinated and provide proof of their vaccination status to access certain settings starting September 22, 2021. This measure has been implemented to further protect Ontarians as the province continues to confront the Delta-driven fourth wave of COVID-19.

Accepted Proof of Vaccination Methods:

Beginning September 22, 2021, the following methods of proof of vaccination status will be accepted when visiting a City of Brampton Recreation Centre, along with one additional piece of personal identification: 
  1. Proof of immunization vaccine receipt: This can be obtained from the provincial booking portal, or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line at 1-833-943-3900.  
  2. Ontario enhanced digital vaccine receipt: The Ontario government is introducing this option in October 2021. The digital vaccine receipt can be kept on your mobile phone and easily used to show that you've been vaccinated. More information will be provided regarding this option when it is made available.
Note: Proof of a negative COVID-19 test will not be accepted as an alternative to proof of full vaccination.​

Exemptions:

Individuals who cannot receive the vaccine due to medical exemptions will be permitted entry with a doctor’s note clearly indicating a COVID-19 vaccination exemption. This will be recognized until medical exemptions can be integrated as part of a digital vaccine certificate made available by the provincial government in October.
