Our mission, our vision and values reflect the aspirations of the communities we serve and the rich history and service of the YMCA over the past 160 years in Canada.

Each of our communities is special, each is unique, and each has a story to be told. Our region is enriched by our communities. The YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka sees each Y as special and sees each person in it as an opportunity for participation and belonging.

We all are part of special places we call ours. That may be a village, town, city, region – or even a lake, a café or a park. Each community, each special place, is a part of who we are and what we aspire to be. For each of us, for those who work and volunteer with our Ys, and for those who use its services, we each have a YMCA that is special to us and to our community. We each have a “My Y.”
