Peace Week

A nationwide celebration of peace

We know we can’t change the world alone, but we know together we can do more. That’s the power of a global community.

YMCA Peace Week – November 13-20, 2021

As we navigate through 2021 and the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, YMCA Peace Week illuminates how the work of building peace needs to continue now more than ever. COVID-19 and the urgent calls for action for diversity, equity, and inclusion are challenging us, as individuals, as communities, and as a country, to reconsider where we’ve been and where we want to go. During YMCA Peace Week, we honour those at the forefront of these peace-building efforts and encourage Canadians to ask themselves how they can bring change to their communities.

When people act for peace, they build community by promoting a sense of belonging, fostering empathy, and embracing diversity.

Join us for Yoga for Peace!

As part of the Peace Week celebrations, the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka invites everyone to join one of the many Yoga for Peace classes at your local YMCA Health, Fitness, and Aquatics facility. Sessions are free and open to the community. Please see below for the Yoga for Peace schedule.
