THE Y HAS RE-OPENED

The health and well-being of our communities is why the Y exists and this drives our priorities.  The new Y membership will be different in many ways, but one thing will always remain the same our friendly and welcoming staff will be ready to assist you as we all learn and adjust together.

New requirements are driven by guidelines from the local Health Authority and WorkSafeBC.  Members will reserve a time to access a variety of services and programs at the Downtown and Westhills Y.  At this time the Eagle Creek Y will not be reopening, check back for further updates.

Membership at the Y

A single category of Y membership will be available, for individuals and for families to access our open facilities and programs.

Given the changes in our operations, and due to the difficult financial situation that we face with the new more limited capacity, and after several months of lost revenues, we are announcing changes to the Y’s membership and fee structure.

CURRENT/PAST Y MEMBERS

All active memberships from March 2020 have been cancelled.  Members who made a March membership payment, or those who purchased an annual membership, have a pro-rated credit on their account.  This amount will be used at the time you purchase a new membership.

HOW TO BUY A MEMBERSHIP AND RE-JOIN THE Y

Step 1
Step 2
Step 3

Purchase a new membership using the Y’s Online Service Portal.

After you have purchased your membership, download the new Y mobile app.  There is a 30-60 minute delay from the time of purchase so the app and our registration software can synch together.  If you try to use the app before purchasing a membership you will not be successful. Details and how to videos about the Mobile App can be found here.

Account Credits/Requests

These credits will be available toward payment of a new purchase or will remain on your account on an indefinite basis.

There is no need to request a cancellation. All memberships have now been stopped and will not resume automatically.  When you choose to return, the credit will be applied toward a membership starting at that time.

We would like to ask you to consider starting your membership, even if you are not feeling ready to come back to visit our facilities until later. In staying with us and committing to your YMCA-YWCA membership, proudly saying “I belong to the Y!”, you reinforce that participation here is different, and important in more ways than your own individual health. Your support helps us continue strengthening our community, as we have since 1875, and it ensures that we’ll be here when you are ready to return.

Additional donations can be made, in support of the many individuals who may require financial assistance to participate, with charitable tax receipts available.
