The Y wants to help you with all aspects of life. That’s why memberships at the Y are all-inclusive. You’re used to access to great group fitness classes, our pool and gymnasium sports. Starting in January, many of our previously registered programs for children, youth and adults will also be included with your membership. So, rather than register in advance, you can just show up when it’s convenient for you and your family. Our programs for children and teens now align with adult programming during peak times, making the YMCA a convenient place for families to enjoy life together. In addition to the dozens of programs and activities included, swim lessons will now be part of every youth and family membership. This means your kids can learn to swim, meet new friends and stay active–at no additional cost. For more information on all-inclusive memberships, contact Member Services.

As a non-profit charitable organization, the YMCA relies on donations, volunteers and membership dues to sustain our organization. In order to maintain and grow programs and services, YMCA membership dues will be subject to an increase starting January 1st, 2013. This increase will allow us to keep pace with rising operating costs, improve facility equipment and offerings, offer more programs, and provide you with the best possible service. Please also be advised that on April 1, 2013 the 12% HST will be replaced by the 5% GST. For specific information on membership dues, please contact Member Services.
