We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to live healthier, happier lives.

The YMCA operates for the good of people and communities rather than for a profit. A key focus of our charitable mission is providing vital services that positively impact some of Canada’s most pressing health and social issues. 

The YMCA is for everyone. That’s why you’ll find us taking extra steps to provide financial assistance to make Y programs affordable for everyone, ensure accessibility for children of all abilities, and delivering programs targeting specific groups or neighbourhoods without cost to participants.

The YMCA annual fundraising campaign is focused on raising much needed resources that help kids, youth, adults and seniors get access to proven YMCA community programs.

Last year, through the generosity of 5,114 donors, the YMCA was able to provide 12,647 people with the financial assistance they needed to reach their potential.


Your donation…
  • Gives a teen access to YMCA youth leadership programs, helping them develop confidence and positive peer relationships.
  • Gives a child the opportunity to attend a YMCA summer camp, giving them outdoor experiences and memories to last a lifetime.
  • Gives a senior citizen the chance to maintain good health and develop connections in the community through the YMCA Healthy Heart program.
  • Provides a vulnerable family with an all-inclusive membership to the YMCA so they can get healthy together through swimming, sports, fitness and more.
