After 75 years as a health and physical fitness hub for local military members, their families and the community, CFB Halifax’s Stadacona Fitness, Sports and Recreation Centre (STADPLEX) will permanently close its doors by Oct. 31. The facility has reached the end of its useful life and, although currently safe for occupancy, is now beyond long-term economical repair.

Personnel Support Programs (PSP) staff is working to ensure STADPLEX programming and services remain available to the Defence community until the closure. The 12 Wing Shearwater Fitness and Sports Centre will remain operational seven days a week, open to Defence Team members, veterans and members of the public who possess memberships. The Fleet (HMC Dockyard) Fitness Centre will see its hours extended to accommodate members of the Defence community who frequent the facility for PT classes, programs and day-to-day use.

The closure of STADPLEX will happen in phases, with the closure of the pool and squash courts taking place first. The official dates of closure for these two facilities have not yet been determined, but notice will be given to members and community groups as the dates are confirmed.

A project proposal for the replacement of STADPLEX is in early stages of development and is expected to take several years to deliver. This long-term solution will come with full support and commitment from leadership and will ensure the Defence community is able to enjoy vital health and physical fitness services for years to come.
