Community YMCA

A Community Cornerstone

Located at the heart of Halifax’s North End and known as a community cornerstone, our Community YMCA impacts the lives and engages over 600 individuals, primarily youth, in programming focused on health and fitness, leadership, recreation and community engagement.

It’s here where youth go to learn new skills, socialize with their peers and participate in meaningful activities that contribute to lasting personal and social change. More than just a building, it is the centre of the North End community.

At the Community Y, we welcome everyone and offer a variety of programs and services to develop individuals, families and our community in spirit, mind and body. Our programs and services are community focused with the goal to engage and build each individual member of the community.

We invite you to visit the Community Y and explore and experience our many programs and services.
