George Bell Arena is one of eight indoor ice arenas operated by a board of management. These City boards were established between the early 1950s and early 1970s by the former City of Toronto and Borough of East York as a means of engaging the local community in the decision making for managing these facilities.

  • developing proposed ice allocation schedules based on the applications received, and consistent with the targets and requirements set-out in the City’s Ice Allocation Policy and the objectives of the Relationship Framework, for approval by the General Manager, Parks, Forestry and Recreation
