Temporary Closure

Dear Family Y Members, Participants, Families and Clients,

As you are aware, a province-wide lockdown has been announced. 

Unfortunately, our Health, Fitness and Aquatics facility is required to temporarily close during the required shut down period, from December 26, 2020 and is expected to last for four weeks until January 23, 2021.

Despite our disappointment in having to temporarily close our facility again, we are hopeful that this upcoming shut-down will prove successful at significantly reducing the spread of COVID-19 amongst our communities and the province.

Membership fees will be automatically suspended effective the day of the upcoming lock-down and will re-start upon cessation of the shut-down. Due to the timing of scheduled payments, memberships will be extended by the number of paid days not used due to the shut-down upon reopening.

Registration for swimming lessons and other registered programming will be put on hold until further notice. Staff will continue to monitor the situation and communicate with members prior to re-opening. There may be information or dates on this website that were current before the lockdown. Please note that we are closed until further notice and the most current information will be posted here on the home page, or on our social media pages.

As always, your continued financial support through donations is greatly appreciated and enables us to find new ways to support our communities during the pandemic. Should you wish to make a year-end donation, please click here.

Continue to work out with your favourite YMCA instructors! If you haven’t already done so, please join our members only Facebook group.


As you know the government has delayed in class learning from January 11th to January 25th. In order to help support our families and our communities the Y is pleased to be offering Emergency School Age programs beginning Tuesday, January 12th at the following locations:

Currently spaces will be limited to 15 children per location, based on staffing, and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. In order to participate, parents must be deemed as an essential worker under the provincial guidelines. This eligibility will be determined by your local municipality.


Early Learning Child Care will remain open subject to COVID-19 protocols as determined by public health and government officials. 

All Community Initiatives, Settlement Services and Employment Services will continue to be available remotely for continued community support. 

Individuals requiring services may contact staff via the following methods:
Community Initiatives: 519-371-9230 Ext 5
Settlement Services: 519-371-9222 Ext 6
Employment Services: 519-371-9222 Ext 6 (Owen Sound) or 519-364-3163 (Hanover)

Your YMCA remains committed to supporting our communities despite the pandemic. As any further information becomes available, we will let you know. 

Thank you from your Family YMCA!
