Description & Services

The Emera Centre Northside is a community recreation facility with an NHL-size ice surface, an elevated indoor mondo-flex covered 1/8 mile walking track, and convention and meeting rooms.

We are very proud to be home to the Northside Vikings and Northside & Minor District Hockey Association, the Breton Sport & Trophy Major Bantam Cougars and the Memorial High School Marauders.

We have a seniors walking club, The Golden Steppers, and an Emera Centre Walking Club. We offer fitness classes three evenings per week.

The best way to sum up what this facility provides is “something for everyone”. People of all ages enjoy the convenience of a modern heated facility. It means families getting out and spending quality time together at family skating, a hockey game, or perhaps catching up with an old friend for a few laps around the walking track. The community and multi-purpose rooms are perfect for weddings, showers, reunions and fitness classes.
