The Municipalities of Bruce and Grey Counties sit on the traditional territory of the Anishnabek Nation: The People of the Three Fires known as Ojibwe, Odawa, and Pottawatomie Nations. We give thanks to them, and to the Chippewas of Saugeen, and the Chippewas of Nayaashiinigmiing, as the traditional keepers of this land and water, and we also recognize the traditional homeland of the Metis Nation.

Our community needs the YMCA, and the YMCA needs our community
Every gift—no matter how big or small—helps create a real impact in the lives of children, youth, adults, and families in communities across Grey-Bruce. Your generosity can change lives.
“Thank you to all those who have donated in the past and continue to donate today. Your generosity has made an important impact in someone’s life”
CEO (retired after 43 years), YMCA of OSGB
Statistics show that many local people simply do not have the financial means to access health and fitness programs which would greatly benefit their overall well-being. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, together we’re able to provide individuals and families with access to solutions so that they can overcome challenges.
What our community has to say
Hear from members, parents, partners and friends on how the YMCA has improved their life.
“Well done YMCA for taking every step to ensure that our experience is COVID-friendly, safe, and fun. A big shout out to the Welcome staff, cleaning staff and the Aquatics team who have gone above and beyond to be responsive and caring to the member’s fitness and safety needs. Glad to have the Y in my life again.”
