Province-wide emergency and stay-at-home

What this means for the YMCA of Oakville

Based on the province-wide emergency and stay-at-home order, the YMCA of Oakville is temporarily not able to operate in-person programs. We continue to offer a variety of other virtual programs including online fitness classespersonal training and more.

Our YMCA leadership team is constantly assessing the messages from Public Health requesting people remain vigilant and cautious in preventing community transmission of the virus, especially as new variables are emerging with less understood variants.

At this time, we will not be resuming in-person programs at the Peter Gilgan Family YMCA at 410 Rebecca Street.

We will continue to monitor the situation locally, and apply three priorities to inform our decisions related to our Health, Fitness, and Aquatics operations:

  • Health and safety of our staff and members
  • Community interest in attending in-person programming
  • Financial viability as a responsible charity

Child Care

Impact during Province-wide School Closures

Based on the Ministry of Education’s announcement to close Ontario schools until further notice for in-person learning following the current April School Break, please be advised that our school-age before and after school child care program is paused to align with the school closure. There is no impact to our YMCA of Oakville toddler and preschool child care programs.

Should there be any change to this plan, we will share this information through our centres, emails to families, Weemarkable, and our YMCA website.
