    Hello! I'm brand-new to everything, and eagerly anticipating the delivery of my first monofin (A junior-size one from a fairly unknown Ontario company called fun-fin...which I mixed up with fin-fun on ebay and ordered accidentally...I'll let you folks now how that turns out :/ ) --I'll confess, I wound up here doing research for a project, and thought I'd immerse myself a bit more (ha!). I live in Toronto, right on the lake, but I regularly swim at the community centre after work. Does anyone know if there are any flipper-friendly pools in TO where I might practice with my monofin?

    there's actually al paladini community centre up in vaughan (close to canada's wonderland, just above toronto) that lets you use monofins. they let me train with those a summer ago.

    I am glad you have some nice mermaid friendly places for swimming where you are. I am having difficulties finding a place for this upcoming winter in the capital region.

    Hey Toronto Mers! I just got an email response to my Toronto 311 enquiry regarding monofins stating:

    "It appears that all of the Etobicoke York Pools allows the use of fins and snorkels during there lane swims as long as it is not too busy. Once it get busy, we would ask you to refrain from this activity."

    So, there's somewhere to practice with monofins (though actual tails would probably be pushing it). I am waiting on confirmation from the downtown area, and I'll report my findings!

    we are really hoping as Canadian Mermaids gains momentum that we can advocate to pools across Canada for the use of tails we're going to have a section on our site for pools to read so people can send them to it and see it's all legit

    Just got off the phone with one of the Aquatics supervisors for downtown Toronto! The use of flippers and monofins is allowable in all Toronto public pools, as long as the pool is not especially crowded, though veto is in the hands of pool staff at any time. I went for a couple of hours last night and now I've got chaffed ankles, haha.

    (Again, I was asking after flippers and monofins, not full mermaid tails, but somewhere to practice is still useful!)

    Yay for canadian mers!

    Im in alberta, and here in red deer the pools allow full tails during lane swims and slow days. The pool i prefer to use have a 15 foot diving tank that is tiled so nice for tails. Its also rentable, and I would definitly rent it if I could get enough mers together!
    If you can't stand upon the water I will meet you on the ocean floor

    *********ADVICE NEEDED FROM CANADIANS********

    So, me and my friend have written and are directing, filming and starring in a show that we are going to put on YouTube. I've written the scripts for the first 2 seasons and everything, and next summer we will film the first season, but I just wanted to know, (I'm playing a mermaid in the show btw) is this a good idea?

  15. #115
    Sure why not :0

    Because I think Canadians might better understand how, weather conditions could effect these sorts of things. if you catch my drift...

    uhm... but there's weather everywhere...

    Your question wasn't really specifically Canadian. Unless you're in Nunavut our weather is on par with many USA states. Like I said not everyone on the forum can post in this thread. Better to ask the whole group
