Dear Friends,

We have an ambitious plan to serve more people and deepen our impact across Halton Region.

A plan as significant as this requires intentional investment in the systems and expertise to make this work possible. This year, we focussed on strengthening our capacity as we prepare for growth.

New technologies will be a key enabler to our process.

Working with YMCAs across Canada, we prepared for the introduction of a new, national registration and customer relations management system to more seamlessly connect people to YMCA programs and services including offering the ability for members and participants to manage their relationship and registrations with the Y online.

We know today’s families are busier than ever. We made it easier for YMCA Preschool Child Care families to connect and communicate with their child’s YMCA educators and learn about their child’s development through the introduction of Weemarkable™, a YMCA pioneered mobile app.

Leveraging expertise and resources from YMCAs across Canada is key to supporting our plan for growth.

In our YMCA School Age Child Care Centres, we introduced A Place to Connect™, a quality based national curriculum for children ages 5-12 in our YMCA Before and After School Child Care programs.

At 410 Rebecca, in partnership with the YMCAs of Niagara and Hamilton|Burlington|Brantford and the GERAS Centre for Aging Research at Hamilton Health Sciences, we launched GERAS Dance, a research and evidence-based ballroom-style dance program for older adults with early cognitive and mobility impairments.

Working with YMCAs across our region, we established new support hubs to leverage specialized expertise in areas such as marketing and communications and philanthropy.

Strengthening our capacity figured strongly in the work of the YMCA this year. Like the people whose stories you’ll read about in our 2018 annual report, we’re building momentum for the important work which lies ahead; serving more people, in more communities.
