Why the Y Matters

As a charity, the YMCA provides vital community services that are having a positive impact on some of people’s most pressing social issues—from chronic disease to unemployment, social isolation, poverty, inequality and more.

Central to our success are:

  • The people who unite behind our mission and bring their many talents to our work;
  • The safe and welcoming places we provide—from health facilities to classrooms to newcomer centres—that foster a sense of community;
  • The comprehensive community-based programs that provide the extra skills, opportunities and confidence that many individuals and families need to achieve their full potential.
  • Our advocacy for health promoting public policy that fosters a sense of belonging; and
  • The philosophy that guides our actions, a holistic approach premised on the building blocks of the social determinants of health, harm reduction, the stages of change, and developmental-appropriateness
