There never seems like enough time in a day for your hectic to do list let alone working on your health and wellness. Whether you had a long day of work or school, chasing after toddlers, or working on a list of errands, a day can end without any physical activity in sight. At the Y, we make it easy for you to be healthier by accommodating all schedules and interests. From drop-in group fitness classes, lane swim, open gym and access to all kinds of cardio and strength equipment, you’ll be sure to find something that works for you.

Notice - We're Improving!


Dear Valued Member,

The YMCA of Northeastern Ontario is excited to announce that we will be renovating our lap pool which will commence on May 13, 2019. This is a capital investment of over $400,000 to our YMCA, thanks in part to the Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant. The renovations will take approximately 6-8 weeks to complete.  During this renovation, the Aquatic Centre will be closed to ensure the safety of our members, volunteers and staff.

The lap pool is now 19 years of age. This speaks volumes to the initial investment made when the Centre for Life was constructed. In 2017, an extensive study was done on both pools in the Aquatic Centre. In 2017 the teach pool project was funded and fully redone. Now in 2019, we are ready to complete the lap pool work.   With the support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation grant, and the YMCA’s commitment to asset renewal, the next phase of the pool refurbishment is now possible.

While the pool under goes these necessary improvements, additional fitness classes will be added to the schedule to help those members who frequent the pool for their health and fitness needs. These class times will include additional Chair Yoga, Gentlefit and Zumba Gold classes. If you would like to book a Smart Start appointment to help re-familiarize yourself with the Fitness Centre, please see Membership Services or stop by the Wellness Desk located on the Fitness Floor at your convenience.

Thank you for your patience and support as we continue to reinvest in our Y. We look forward to sharing updates once the project is underway.

Yours in health,

Kendra MacIsaac

General Manager

The first victim in the Christchurch New Zealand mosque massacre was reportedly an elderly Afghan refugee who stood at the door of the mosque greeting the gunman by saying “hello brother”. 


Once again we hear the news of tragedy in our world. These are challenging times — uncertainty, fear, and anti-immigrant attitudes have spiked globally.  We have seen hatred and violence aimed at people of different faiths in their houses of worship. The massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand on Friday March 15,2019, took the lives of so many people in the Muslim community.  Our hearts and thoughts go out to the families and the community as they grieve this senseless loss.


We are a charity that has cared for newcomers to our City since 2010.  Today, our participants, volunteers and staff reflect on the diversity of our communities and the generations of immigrants who braved the journey to a new world with hope.  We will continue to show love and kindness to each other, offer safe spaces where we can all be ourselves, and build bridges between communities in the name of peace.


We will remain dedicated and vigilant in standing against hatred, violence, and exclusion and strive for love, peace, and inclusion.


Vision: Building healthy, welcoming communities.


Values: Caring Health Honesty Inclusiveness Respect Responsibility
