About Us

Welcome to the YMCA of Three Rivers.
We're here for you. We’re here for good.

There are so many reasons to be grateful. For us at the YMCA of Three Rivers we only need to look in on one of our amazing Child Care centres and hear the laughter and joy of children learning. Or open up the doors to one of our six Health and Wellness centres and see people of all ages and stages of life participating in programming and classes, and putting their health and wellness first. It’s showing up to one of our Youth drop-ins, and seeing teens and young adults connect with peers and mentors in welcoming and inclusive spaces.  


You — our community of members, donors, staff, families, campers, and volunteers — are the reason we’re here for good.  


For more than 150 years, the YMCAs of Cambridge and Kitchener-Waterloo, the YMCA-YWCA of Guelph, and the YMCA of Stratford-Perth have proudly served our communities. In 2020, we officially unified, allowing us to continue showing up for our communities where and how they’ve needed us most.   


We’ll boldly claim it: the Y, your Y, has something for everyone in our community. We’re a leading provider of not-for-profit Child Care, playing a role in research-based program development and community engagement. Through our Day and Overnight camps we help children and youth develop new skills and build lifelong friendships. Our youth programs are geared developed with youth for youth — helping them learn, grow, and explore in safe, welcoming, supportive, and inclusive spaces. Through our Immigrant Services, we welcome newcomers to Canada, providing supports and connections as they transition to their new home. At Employment Services, we walk alongside job seekers as they upskill or are matched to employers in our communities. YMCA WorkWell, our newest service offering, works with organizations to build healthy and thriving workplaces, which in turn, benefits the health and well-being of our communities. And, of course, we are proud to be home to six Health and Wellness locations where members from all ages and stages of life find connection and programming to put their health and wellness first.  


The Y means something different to everyone. And that’s a good thing.
