Women’s Plus Renovations

Renovation update
June 21, 2017

Due to unexpected construction delays, the Women’s Plus change-room is now scheduled to re-open on June 30. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience. If you have any questions, please visit our membership services desk.

Women’s Plus Renovations

Starting May 1, we’ll be renovating and updating our Women’s Plus change room. After compiling research and gathering feedback from our members, we’re excited to proceed with this renovation which will offer you the best YMCA experience possible. You may recall last year we renovated the men’s change room, as it was a priority due to the immediate tiling needs. Now it’s your turn!

Changes will include re-tiling the floor and whirlpool, upgrading the lounge area, providing new lockers, reconfiguring the locker area, and installing new countertops, shower stalls, carpet, and coffee area.

To facilitate these changes as quickly and effectively as possible, the Women’s Plus change room will need to be closed. During this time, current Women’s Plus members will be asked to use the general change room. Towels will be provided at the front desk and members can also receive reimbursement for the difference in fees between the Plus and General membership for the period of the renovation. You may also use a the YMCA of Burlington or Mississauga during the renovation period.

A passion for creating social impact

Gabrielle Scrimshaw is First Nations. This means she was automatically born with some daunting numbers stacked against her. She was 8x more likely to commit suicide than the average Canadian, 3x more likely to be unemployed, be underfunded in her quest for education, and more likely to drop out of high school than finish it.

In the face of these raw circumstances, she worked hard to follow her heart. She became the youngest Associate in one of Canada’s most competitive finance programs, was the first in her family to complete post-secondary education, travelled to 20 countries on five continents, worked with Heads of State and started a national organization for Aboriginal Professionals.

Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Gabrielle is a member of the Hatchet Lake First Nation. She has studied international business and policy in Australasia, Asia, the Americas and Europe. She co-founded a national not-for-profit for Aboriginal Professionals and was named the 2013 First Nations Youth Achiever by Indspire.

Parent Survey: Before and After School Care

Your feedback is important!

At the YMCA of Oakville, we strive to be a leader in the development of active, healthy children and youth.  We know that access to high quality recreational activities within an after school program gives kids a positive place to connect with peers, form new friendships, learn about teamwork, get active and have FUN!  The experience your child has is an important part of their development and a vital part of our commitment to building healthy communities.

From now until March 10, 2017, we’re inviting all YMCA child care families to complete a short online survey. We want to know if our programs are meeting your needs and ensure that your child is having a positive experience.

Parent Survey: Before and After School programs

For your convenience, hard copies of the survey are available at your child care centre.  Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback.
