The YMCA is a place for all. A place where you can find friends, experience better health and where children, adults and families thrive. But the YMCA of Oakville is much more than the Peter Gilgan Family YMCA building.

We offer a number of types of programs to the community. Only Member Programs requires a YMCA Membership.

YMCA Member Programs

For a monthly fee members have access to a number of programs at the Peter Gilgan Family YMCA and some registered programs. Financial assistance is available.
