What We Do
The YMCA is dedicated to helping everyone in the community feel healthy, strong, safe, and included so they can reach their full potential. Because everyone deserves a Y moment.
Join us in celebrating the transformative power of YMCA moments that evoke a range of feelings and experiences. From the joy of camp adventures, to the confidence built in child care centres and youth programs, every interaction with the YMCA creates lasting memories.
Everyone deserves a Y moment…
…Moments that give a healthy start.
The Y connects thousands of people of all ages to the supports they need to live a healthy lifestyle. 1 in 10 YMCA members receive financial assistance to access our programs if they can’t afford to pay full fees.
…Moments that shape a child’s future.
As the largest provider of licensed child care in our community, we welcome children from over 4,000 families across over 65 licensed child care sites.
We provide a safe space for 5,000 children to learn new skills and make new friends through our Day Camp Programs. The Y supports early childhood education by delivering its national Playing to Learn child care curriculum across its centres.
…Moments that create a path to success.
The Y supports youth by providing opportunities to earn certificates, high school credits, and volunteer hours.
The Y connects local youth to bursaries and scholarships so that they can access post-secondary education.
…Moments that build connections.
The Y delivers English as a Second Language Classes to new Canadians settling in our community. The Y supports over 5,000 unemployed or underemployed individuals each year, helping them on their journey to meaningful employment opportunities through our Employment Services centres.
