We build healthy communities.


The Y is a charitable organization, offering health, hope, and opportunity for all!

The YMCA of Southwestern Ontario's mission is to be dedicated to the enrichment of our communities through growth in spirit, mind, and body for people of all backgrounds, beliefs, and abilities. Your trust and support has enabled us to serve communities across Southwestern Ontario for nearly 170 years.

Providing flexibility and programs to serve your unique needs.

With health and fitness branches, camps, child care centres, community programs and newcomer services across the region, YMCA of Southwestern Ontario is committed to the development of healthy communities.

Re-opening our Doors.

The YMCA continues to fundraise in order to be able to support those in need as programs re-open. The association currently serves nearly 240,000 people in more than 190+ locations across the region. Last year, 3 in 10 of those participants were financially supported by the YMCA, thanks to the support of our donors.

Community is the cornerstone of the Y. Together, we connect active and engaged people like you to build stronger communities. Follow us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram to stay connected.
