Our Impact

From social isolation and unemployment, to lack of accessible child care, affordable housing, and systemic racism, too many of our neighbours face daily barriers that limit their ability to build healthy, thriving lives. Our communities need the YMCA more than ever before.

Land Acknowledgement
 

We wish to acknowledge that we are situated upon the traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Mississaugas. This land is covered by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, which was an agreement between the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe to share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.

We further acknowledge that this land is also covered by the Between the Lakes Purchase, 1792, between the Crown and Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also recognize the contributions of Metis, Inuit, and other Indigenous peoples have made, both in shaping and strengthening our communities, provinces and country as a whole.

This continues to be the home to many Indigenous Peoples from across Turtle Island, and we are grateful for the opportunity to work in this community on their territory. As settlers we thank all the generations of people who have taken care of this land for thousands of years. We recognize that we must do more to learn about the rich history of this land so that we can better understand our roles as residents, neighbours, partners and caretakers.
