A vibrant, healthy community offers opportunities for everyone

For the YMCA, that often means stepping forward with a new program or service to address specific and unique requirements in our community. It may also mean reaching out, beyond our walls to deliver programs where they are needed most.

The YMCA of Oakville is dedicated to addressing the needs of our community. Through strategic partnerships with like-minded organizations, and with the support of generous donors, we help foster positive development, healthy living and social responsibility.

Our programs not only strengthen the community’s very foundations but also ensure all individuals have access to quality information that will help them grow, thrive, lead and belong.


Child & Family Development

The YMCA offers programming for families with children up to the age of 5 at various locations. Focusing on family bonding, language skills, reading and more, these free programs are made available to anyone – regardless of location or financial barriers.

Programs in the Community

We also offer programs for children 6 years and above and teens at a variety of convenient locations, allowing them to be impacted by YMCA programs all over Oakville.

Leadership Programs

YMCA Leadership Programs provide a safe place for children and youth to develop team work, communication, creativity, and gain a deeper understanding. Participants will work together to create and implement community building opportunities with the support of their mentors, while having fun and gaining new friends.

National Events

The YMCA of Oakville is proud to participate in national YMCA events throughout the year, including YMCA Healthy Kids Day and YMCA Peace Week.

Social Innovation Project

The YMCA Social Innovation Project, created in 2018 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the YMCA Peace Medallion in Oakville, aims to inspire youth (ages 13 to 24) and support their desire to build creative solutions and respond to complex social issues.
