In addition to providing quality fitness, sport and recreation opportunities, the YMCA has always been at the forefront of innovating outreach programs and community services. While names and specific mandates may have changed over the years, our commitment to responding to the existing and emerging needs of our diverse communities has not.
At YMCA Community Services, we are open to men and women, youth and adults and groups who need our support. We provide equal access and opportunities for participation as we work within our neighbourhood and with other organizations to support the healthy development of people from all walks of life.
