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.

The Ontario government announced that on Tuesday, February 16, our public health region will transition out of the shutdown. The YMCA is closely reviewing details and an announcement with specifics regarding branch re-openings will be made early next week.
The health and safety of members, volunteers, and staff, is always our top priority. Learn more about our enhanced safety and precautions for when we are able to reopen our doors.
And don't forget, you can still get your YMCA workouts and stay active with our Virtual Y!
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 optimistic that we will be able to return to camp in 2021 and are continuing to work with our provincial and local health authorities as we plan for the upcoming camp season to ensure the safest possible camp experience for your campers.
Our YMCA Child Care centres are currently open and operating with enhanced health and safety procedures.
With the announcement of school closures, our School Age programs will be closed until at least January 11, 2020.
