We’re Open Friday, July 16

We are thrilled about the news that Ontario will be moving to Step 3 of its reopening plan on Friday, July 16. We can’t wait to finally open our doors to members this Friday!

While we are reopening on Friday, fitness classes and select activities will not start until Monday, July 19. We thank you for your patience as we work quickly to recall and train staff so that we can offer more services next week.

This Friday, July 16, members can access the Fitness Centre from 6:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m. and the Walking Track between 8:00 am-11:00 a.m.

This Saturday, July 17 and Sunday, July 18 members can access the Fitness Centre from 7:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. There will be no outdoor fitness classes this weekend but they will resume on Monday.

Summer Schedule Starts Monday, July 19th

Our Summer Schedule will be in place Monday, July 19 until Sunday, September 12. All activities will be available to book on Active NET as of Friday, July 16.


All memberships that were active prior to our closure in April will be reactivated automatically on Friday, July 16 and will continue on your previous payment schedule. If your membership was on hold prior to our closure in April, it will continue to remain on hold. Upon reopening, your initial membership payment will be reconciled based on the last payment made prior to shutdown in April 2021 and your next regularly scheduled payment date following re-opening. 

Outdoor fitness classes will be included with membership as of Friday, July 16.

If you have questions about your membership or membership payments, please email support@osgb.ymca.ca and a Customer Service Representative will get back to you as soon as possible.

COVID-19 Safety

Member and staff safety during reopening is our top priority! All COVID-19 safety protocols that were in place before we closed in April 2021, are still in place when we reopen this Friday. Please review our safety protocols here: https://www.ymcaowensound.on.ca/covid-19

Change rooms and showers will be open with physical distancing measures in place. Please arrive no more than 10 minutes before your activity and do not spend time socializing in the change rooms. Participants in activities with high attendance may be assigned a change room as part of our safety protocols.

While we strongly encourage vaccination against COVID-19 for those that are able, you are not required to show proof of vaccination to attend the facility. Masks are still required in the facility except when engaging in high intensity exercise where physical distancing is maintained. If you have a medical mask exemption, please call 519-376-0484 ext. 0 to discuss accommodations with our Customer Service staff prior to attending the Y.
