The Y Difference

“Being a member of a gym is a commitment to oneself. Being a member of a YMCA means more than that. It means being a member of a community of people that genuinely care for one another and are committed to your success.” - YMCA Member

The YMCA is a charity that believes everyone deserves to be healthy in spirit, mind and body and it’s our mission to make this a reality. When you walk through our doors, we want you to feel welcome and a have a strong sense of belonging to our YMCA community. Research has shown that this connection to others and your community can have a huge impact on your health.

That’s why inside each YMCA you’ll find a vibrant community, alive with people who are making healthy choices for themselves and helping others do the same.

Enjoy Programs for all ages

With programs and fitness classes for the very young to the young at heart, the YMCA is where different generations can get healthier together. We place special emphasis on scheduling our programs so the whole family can find opportunities to be active at the same time in one place.

Discover many ways to be active

Everyone has their favourite way of staying fit, so we make sure you have plenty of choice. With most of our Ys featuring a fitness centre, gym and pool, there’s plenty of equipment, classes and activities to keep your workout as routine or varied as you like!

Receive financial assistance

No one should be denied the opportunity to be active because they cannot afford a gym membership. As part of our charitable purpose, financial assistance is available to help reduce or eliminate the costs of being a member.

Donate

Your health should not be determined by the size of your bank account or the neighbourhood you live in.

But that is the sad reality facing many people in our communities. As a charity, we believe everyone deserves the opportunity to lead healthy lives, regardless of where they live or their circumstances.

Donations to the YMCA help us deliver programs that improve health, reduce social isolation and inspire hope.

A healthier tomorrow starts here, with your help.

Your donation will benefit your whole community. Research shows that when people feel a sense of belonging, their health improves - physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. And our communities benefit too. There’s less illness, violence and inequality and more giving and happiness.

That’s why for more than 160 years, we have created centres of community where children, teens and adults can come together to get the support they need to be healthier in spirit, mind and body. Through our financial assistance program, everyone can access the YMCA regardless of their ability to pay the fee.

With your help, we can reverse the trends of chronic disease, childhood obesity, social isolation and remove barriers to health for people across this country.

Together, we can build a healthier Canada.
Lend your support by making a gift today to your YMCA.

To find out more about ways to give, please visit the Donate section of our website.


Sponsor

The YMCA serves more than 2.25 million people across Canada, and our collective impact at over 1,700 program sites is what truly makes us unique. Our internationally recognized work to reverse the current trends of physical inactivity, childhood obesity, chronic disease, social isolation and youth engagement is rooted in 160 years of building healthier Canadian communities.

We cannot do this work alone. By supporting the YMCA, your organization can help build a healthier community, one person at a time.

If you are interested in sponsoring an event or making a donation, please contact one of our fund development managers and we’ll work with you to identify opportunities that align with your corporate goals.
