Establishing the highest possible standards.
It's been too long since we last saw you. We've heard from many members and participants who are missing their daily routine and YMCA friends and connections. We miss it and all of you too!
Even though things have changed, the Y continues to serve our local communities in many ways, such as providing essential care packages to neighbours in need, offering free virtual wellness programs to people at home, and providing remote services to newcomers to Canada.

Health & Fitness
Our Health, Fitness and Aquatics branches have been hard at work preparing to reopen our doors. When the Ontario government announces plans to move into phase 3, which includes fitness centres, we will be ready to safely open our doors shortly afterward to welcome back members with enhanced safety and precautions to keep us all safe.
In the meantime please keep active with our Virtual Y!
We know that summer won’t be the same without the overnight camp experience this year but we are happy to report that July 13 will be the opening day for our 2020 YMCA Summer Day Camp season.
Our Summer Day Camp program will incorporate public health measures and our first priority is always the health and safety of our campers, staff, and volunteers.
Our Y Educators and Staff have begun welcoming children back in a safe and supportive manner. We want to ensure parents are informed about our enhanced health and safety measures in all of our YMCA Child Care Centres.

All YMCA of Southwestern Ontario Newcomer and Community Services continue to provide client-direct supports to new and existing clients via phone, email and through virtual and social media platforms.
Specific for our newcomer clients and language learners, we’ve created Facebook pages to keep you connected with our staff and to continue to support your settlement and learning goals.
