About Us

We recognize and respectfully acknowledge that the YMCA of Greater Saint John operates on the unceded and unsurrendered homelands of the Wolastoqiyik, Peskotomuhkati and Mi’kmaq peoples. This statement is a symbol of our commitment to implementing the 94 calls to action put forth by the Truth and Reconciliation commission in all operations across our organization.

About Us

WE ARE THE YMCA

We are a family working together to serve more than 22,000 people across the Greater Saint John area. We believe in helping children, youth, adults, seniors and families reach their full potential. We are a charity dedicated to strengthening the foundations of our community.

For more than 165 years we’ve cared for kids, shaped leaders for tomorrow and helped generations of people come together to find support, get healthier and make friends for life. We are determined to be a genuine, welcoming, hopeful place that is nurturing and fun. This is the community we want. A community where we share a sense of social responsibility, and where we can experience better health in spirit, mind and body.
