Dawson City Pool Status
Good news / Bad news

Good news - Our pool has received our permit for operation for the season from Environmental Health.

Bad news - Lifeguard re-certification planned for today and tomorrow was cancelled as COVID cases in Whitehorse has affected availability of our instructor. There is currently only one re-certification instructor in the Territory, so we are scrambling to either send staff to them in Whitehorse or re-schedule their trip to Dawson as soon as possible.
This means our opening is again up in the air as we do not have certified staff to operate the facility. We're all very disappointed by the situation, but we will find a solution. Once we know more, we will let you know.

We appreciate your patience on this and hope to open our doors soon.

Parks and Recreation Manager,
City of Dawson
