Become a Member
The YMCA is a charity and by becoming a member you not only have access to our entire facility and all of our programs, but you are giving back to your local community and supporting local initiatives to build healthy communities.
Our Healthy Communities Fund provides assistance to those who are unable to afford access to the YMCA and our programs on their own. This is only possible through fundraising and charitable donations from people like you!
There are opportunities for you to get involved. Regardless of age, experience or how much time you can commit, you can make a difference in the lives of others. Volunteers are the heart of the YMCA and that’s why the Y is the heart of our community.
When you work at the YMCA, you work with like-minded people who believe in the YMCA values – health, respect, responsibility, inclusiveness, caring and honesty. Whether you’re looking for part-time employment or wanting to start a new full time career, there are opportunities waiting for you!
The YMCA is a charity that has been helping Canadians improve their lives since the first Y opened in Montreal in 1851. YMCA programs are offered at more than 1,700 locations across Canada and help more than 2.25 million people annually become healthier in spirit, mind, and body.
