Establishing the highest possible standards.


It's been too long since we last saw you. We've heard from many members and participants who are missing their daily routine and YMCA friends and connections. We miss it and all of you too!

Even though things have changed, the Y continues to serve our local communities in many ways, such as providing essential care packages to neighbours in need, offering free virtual wellness programs to people at home, and providing remote services to newcomers to Canada.

Health & Fitness

Health & Fitness

Our Health & Fitness facilities are open! 

The health and safety of members, volunteers, and staff, is always our top priority. 

We've established the highest possible standards for our branches. Learn more about our vaccination requirements & policies, safety protocols, and mask guidelines.



At all Y camps, we remain committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all our campers, their families, and our staff team. We are pleased that we are able to return to camp in 2021 and continue to work with provincial and local health authorities to ensure the safest possible camp experience for your campers.

Child Care

Child Care & School Age Programs

Our YMCA Children's Educational Services sites are currently open and operating with enhanced health and safety procedures. We continue to follow the public health and safety measures that have kept early years and child care programs open and safe to ensure your children can learn with their friends. You can find our full Children's Educational Services COVID-19 Policy here.
