The YMCA is a reflection and celebration of the diverse communities which we all call home.
We endeavour to create safe spaces, programs and services where all people may belong as their true authentic selves.
We are committed to advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion within our YMCA and within our communities. Using our core values as a guide, we commit to:
- Demonstrating Caring by using our voice to start conversations, create change, and help our communities heal.
- Being Honest about systemic racism, unconscious bias, and its role in keeping us apart.
- To show each other Respect, by believing in the potential and value of every person, regardless of race, gender identity, expression, sexual orientation or beliefs.
- Understanding and working together to take Responsibility for creating and supporting reform that addresses inequality, injustice and recognizing and taking action to support acts of truth and reconciliation for Indigenous Peoples.
There are many opportunities to improve throughout our organization and we will do more.
Here is what we are doing now
