The YMCA was established over 150 years ago as a charity dedicated to the health of both individuals and communities. Our focus on inclusiveness and accessibility means we serve people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities through all stages of life. Through YMCA financial assistance programs, the YMCA is accessible to all.
Today, there are 45 YMCAs and 8 YMCA-YWCAs in Canada that offer programs and services tailored to each community’s needs. Together, they serve 1.8 million people in more than 250 communities across Canada – and they keep growing. All Associations are members of YMCA Canada, which works to strengthen associations and advocates on their behalf, regionally, nationally and internationally.
For over 50 years, the YMCA of Oakville has played a most crucial role in improving the quality of health and life for thousands of people.
We are unique. We are a charity that offers fee assistance to those in need, ensuring that our programs and services are open to all.
