Province Lifts Capacity Restrictions for Gyms:

The Provincial government announced that as of October 25, capacity restrictions in gyms and fitness centres will be lifted. The YMCA is pleased to continue to deliver quality programs in a safe environment, following all COVID-19 health and safety guidelines, including proof of vaccination, masking, physical distancing, and thorough cleaning/sanitization procedures. 

    What this means for our members:

  • Increased capacity in our fitness, lane swim, and Aquafit programs.
  • Increased locker availability in our changing rooms.
  • Majority of programs that members currently have to register for will move to a drop-in format meaning no need to register starting on Monday, November 1st. Check-in with your branch for any programs that will remain registered for the time being.
  • Members will still need to show proof of full vaccination (2 doses and 14 days post 2nd dose) alongside government-issued ID to enter our facilities.

Please continue to be kind to our dedicated and caring staff and volunteers who have a responsibility to follow and abide by the regulations and protocols. Thank you!
