Opening Summer 2018

The new Laurier Brantford YMCA will provide for the health, fitness, social and recreation needs for residents of Brantford, Brant County and Six Nations, the post-secondary institutions in the community, as well as visitors.

The bright and spacious facility, located on the south side of Colborne Street, opposite Harmony Square has a distinctive design allowing for a magnificent view across the nearby Grand River.

The new building is made possible thanks to a partnership between Wilfrid Laurier University and the YMCA of Hamilton|Burlington|Brantford, with funding from the City of Brantford, provincial and federal governments, Laurier Students' Union and private donors.
