Payment Updates For Members


Our centres were closed from January 5–30, 2022, during which time you were not charged membership fees. We're open again now, but we did not start charging membership fees until February 5, 2022. As a result of this delay, some members may see a small adjustment in their amount owing for the month of February or March. Once we have finished reviewing your account, you will receive an automated email that will direct you to the My Y portal where you will be able to see a breakdown of your fees. We expect all adjustments to be completed by March 31, 2022.

Thank you for your patience and continued support!

Your Fellow Members Who Give Back

James Stillwell

When our centres had to close during the pandemic, members like James started donating their monthly membership fees, ensuring our charity could provide essentials like emergency shelter and food security programming.

"If you're in a position to donate, it helps ensure there’s a fun place for kids to go after school, or to ensure those who otherwise couldn’t afford to take part in the Y’s programming can still contribute and belong. We all grow from that. When you give to the Y, it’s to support healthy community for all of us, yourself included — and that’s a wonderful feeling!"

—James Stillwell, monthly donor to the YMCA

To join members like James and start giving to the Y, contact Sam at Samantha.Grande@YMCAGTA.ORG or 705-345-9321.

* Terms & Conditions: Temporary Hold

When you place a hold on your membership, no further payments will be taken until you notify us to reactivate your membership. You will continue to receive regular communication from the YMCA. You will not have access to programming at any YMCA of Greater Toronto Health and Fitness centre. You will also lose your priority standing in any registered programs. Once you reactivate, you will not have to pay a join fee unless your time on hold is over 365 days. After 365 consecutive days of being on hold, you may be eligible to pay a join fee.
