Last Updated May 2021
Become a Vaughan City Builder to help shape the largest Y currently under construction in the GTA
Thanks to our generous donors, the new Vaughan YMCA will deliver essential services to help our city emerge from the pandemic stronger than ever. Child care, immigrant settlement support, youth leadership programs, job opportunities, and health and fitness programs will ensure Vaughan continues to be a prosperous home for families and businesses alike — now, and for generations to come.
We invite you to be part of this exciting chapter in our history by joining the Vaughan City Builders: the consortium of individuals, families, and organizations who are bringing these needed supports and opportunities to our city. Your leadership will be recognized in the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Great Hall: a walkway of honour showcasing the trailblazers at the helm of our community’s bright future.
To learn more and get involved, please contact Martha Spears, Senior Director Major Gifts & Special Projects, at 416-357-0392 or email@example.com.
Your new 77,000 square-foot YMCA will feature:
a full-sized gymnasium
whirlpools and steam rooms
a multi-purpose fitness studio
a conditioning and weight room
Our diverse programs designed for all ages and stages include:
Licensed Child Care
Group fitness classes
We’ll strengthen the community by:
helping people get strong – physically, mentally, and socially
providing opportunities for learning, playing, growing, and giving back and
"When will you be open?" It's the #1 question on everyone's mind. We would love to give you an exact date, but it depends on so many factors — especially the construction. We're moving along nicely, but it's too early to nail down an exact date (see what we did there?). So, stay tuned; we'll let you know as soon as we do!
As the new General Manager of the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre YMCA, Katie is no stranger to the Y, which she’s been a part of since childhood. She got her start at the Y’s summer camps, and has worked at various Health & Fitness centres. At the new Vaughan Metropolitan Centre YMCA, Katie will be there to help new members feel welcome and volunteers discover how they can engage with the community.
The City of Vaughan and the YMCA of Greater Toronto have invested in the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre YMCA, but $14 million from the community is needed to make our vision a reality. It’s thanks to the incredible efforts of our Strong Start, Great Future Campaign Cabinet —many of whom are the next generation of leaders—that we are making strides towards our goal.

“After learning about the Y and the great social infrastructure they’re bringing to my community, I thought, ‘How could I not be a part of this?’ If I can spread the word about the good the Y does—and help raise funds to get the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre YMCA—then I'll have done my job.”
