Welcome to the Keeler Centre

Large Community Facility

The Keeler Centre is a fully accessible, non-smoking, air conditioned township facility located in Colborne. This multi-purpose space has so much to offer, making it perfect for weddings, sporting events, meetings/dinner parties/concerts, dances and so much more!

During winter months we offer different sporting activities such as hockey, figure skating and broomball, while in the summer months this space is available to rent for events such as benefit dances, auctions, concerts, lacrosse & ball hockey tournaments, etc.

In addition to the ice pad, the Rotary Hall located upstairs is equipped with a full kitchen; (local friendly caterers and their staff), LLBO licensed with bartending staff available, and has a full sound system and stage. Don't need a very large space? No problem! The Rotary Hall is also capable of being split into two separate rooms should you prefer. The Rotary Hall can accommodate groups, small or large, seated up to 200 people and dancing 250 people.

The Keeler Centre also offers a large outdoor space, great for a summertime event! The large fields have recently been upgraded to accommodate outdoor electrical panels including (8) 20 amp GFCI Receptacles, (3) 30 amp 240V receptacles and (2) 50 amp, 240V receptacles. If you require a bar, it is possible to have the LLBO licencing extended outside.

Covid Vaccine Passport Policy

The Township of Cramahe will require proof of full vaccination and corresponding identification (photo ID or any identification confirming name and date of birth) from members of the public aged 12 and older who want to enter the Keeler Centre and Castleton Town Hall (CTH) starting on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. This policy supports the Provincial legislation outlined under the Reopening of Ontario Act for anyone wishing to enter select public settings.

 There are some exemptions to the regulation, including medical. Upon entry to Keeler Centre & CTH, you will have to present a letter from a physician or RN outlining the medical exemption.

 Children aged 12 to 17 who are participating in active recreation or organized sports, including, hockey, figure skating, public skating, mixed martial arts and any drop-in program targeted for that age group, will be exempt from providing proof of vaccination. Some sports organizations mandated 12+ (OMHA, OWHA) & must be fully vaccinated by October 31st, 2021

 Under Provincial regulation, you are considered fully vaccinated and can show proof at least 14 days following the second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. To obtain your proof of vaccination, visit Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccination portal or call the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line at 1-833-943-3900. If you cannot provide proof of vaccination, you will not be allowed to enter our facilities.

 To protect the privacy of all our residents and participants, the vaccine information you provide will NOT be recorded for future use. You will be asked to provide the documentation each time you enter a facility.

 Cramahe will be enforcing these regulations as they apply to all recreation facilities and event spaces.

 We are taking these steps to protect our residents and support the Provincial Government to minimize the spread of the fourth wave of COVID-19 and the virulent Delta variant. We appreciate your patience as our staff work out these new procedures starting on September 22, 2021. We are in this together. Let’s keep each other safe.
