The Government of Ontario has announced that non-essential workplaces will remain closed as Canadians are urged to continue physical distancing as much as possible right now. Our Health & Fitness centres and services are closed temporarily as a result. This includes in-centre courses and registered programs such as swim classes, Teen Night, and personal training.
Please continue to check ymcagta.org/Alerts for the latest information.
Thank you for your continued support of the YMCA of Greater Toronto and we look forward to welcoming you back.
