Toronto Fun Online Registration Not Work

Toronto Residents know the “Toronto Fun”, which actually means Recreation Programs across the City of Toronto.

Enjoy activities across the City of Toronto in one of our many community centres. Make new friends, learn new skills or improve on existing ones. Qualified and caring staff will guide you through your program every step of the way.

We have a multitude of exciting programs for all ages. Whether you are looking for swimming, fitness, skating, skiing, arts and crafts or dance we have something for everyone.

But, not everybody can join the program, there are people limited each class, and, most of them are not free (but few money required).

For some hot programs like Skating, the big headache program for people who want to register is: Even wake up very early and tried to register through online or phone line, you still could not register because there were too many people registered at the same time. For online registration, You had big chance to meet trouble.

This year, for Winter programs registration,  If you got the registering link from Google, I bet you must get trouble and had not very few chance to see the register web page, Because, the Google Link is WRONG !!

If you click above Online Registration link, you will always get the following fail screen:

The link was http://www1.toronto.ca/wps/portal/contentonly?vgnextoid=92afdada600f0410VgnVCM10000071d60f89RCRD&vgnextchannel=a96adada600f0410VgnVCM10000071d60f89RCRD was actually totally wrong !

So, did you have time was wasted ?

I think it is Toronto.ca webmaster’s fault. They work for Government and get high salary, but they can not provide good website service, almost every year, their website always got problem, link broken or crashed. I do not know what those government IT guys are doing. They should hire smarter and working-hard guys to replace current Toronto.ca IT people.

BTW: after all hot programs spaces gone (about 10:30am), I saw their website gave the following information:

Faint ! What were they doing yesterday? They knew it is the first day to register Winter classes today, why just maintained until they found the web routine did not work? Actually https://www1.toronto.ca did not work this morning.

The people who inputted http://efun.toronto.ca/torontofun/start/start.asp this morning were luck, ONLY this link worked, so they could get chance to login their account and register program which they wanted.

Oh! Toronto.ca IT team !
