Mission Vision and Core Values

The YMCA in Canada is dedicated to the growth of all persons in spirit, mind and body, and to their sense of responsibility to each other and to the global community.

Our values are central to our mission, guiding our behaviours, attitudes and actions. They are a set of beliefs and ideals that we share at the YMCA, and we hope to instill in others:

Building healthy communities
through the power of belonging.

For those who believe that a successful community must be an inclusive community, the YMCA is a powerful association of people joined together by a shared passion to foster a sense of belonging for all.  The YMCA ensures that each individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.

Though the world may be unpredictable, the YMCA remains a constant; dedicated to building healthy, strong and connected communities where everyone belongs.
