Further
together
Annual Report 2014

“The YMCA offers us an extraordinary example of that which has
long been right and good about our country—that is, the tendency
of Canadians to be concerned for others, and to want to help.”

His Excellency the
Right Honourable David Johnston
Governor General of Canada
Patron of YMCA Canada

Our Federation Structure

YMCA Canada’s role

The Canadian YMCA Federation is made
up of 50 Member Associations across the
country that share a common mandate
to advance the health and well-being
of Canadians, with a special focus on
children, teens and young adults. We’ve
been uniting people behind this cause
in one way or another since 1851, when
the YMCA was first established in Canada.
Today, 45 YMCAs and five YMCA-YWCAs
in Canada offer programs and services
tailored to their communities’ needs.

We foster and stimulate the development
of strong Member Associations and
encourage collaborative initiatives;
protect and enhance the reputation of
the YMCA; and advocate on behalf of
Associations regionally, nationally, and
internationally. Now at the end of year
three of our five-year strategic plan, PLAN
Y, we are working together to strengthen
our impact, extend our reach, increase
our capacity and build our brand.

“If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together”.
African Proverb
This annual report provides a brief snapshot of some of the work we’re doing
across the country, together with our Member Associations. It will highlight
specific stories of how the YMCA in Canada has impacted the lives
of Canadians and their communities.
Over the past year, the leadership and expertise of 50,000 dedicated YMCA
staff and volunteers have lent a helping hand to over 2.3 million Canadians in
their journey to develop themselves in spirit, mind and body. In doing so, they
have contributed to our overarching goal of building healthy communities.
Whether you’re just learning about the YMCA or have known it throughout
your lifetime, we are confident that you will learn something new in the pages
that follow. Canada’s YMCAs are always evolving to respond to the needs
of the communities we serve, and to reflect the diverse and ever-changing
nature of those who make up the YMCA.
If you haven’t already done so, join our movement to make Canada the
healthiest place on earth. If you are already involved, thank you for your
efforts and support. Your involvement makes a world of difference, and will
help us go further together.
Thank you!

Why the
Y Matters.
As a charity, the YMCA provides vital community services that
are having a positive impact on some of Canada’s most pressing
social issues—from chronic disease to unemployment, social
isolation, poverty, inequality and more.
Central to our success are:

people

• The
who unite behind our mission and bring their
many talents to our work;

places

• The safe and welcoming
we provide—from health
facilities to classrooms to newcomer centres—that foster a sense
of community; and

programs

• The comprehensive community-based
that
provide the extra skills, opportunities and confidence that many
individuals and families need to achieve their full potential.

people in Canada participated in
our programs. 1.5 million were children,
teens and young adults.

people in more than 119 countries were
supported by the global YMCA.
5

These three critical resources, people, places and programs,
come together at the YMCA to create a sense of belonging to a
supportive network that has proven time and time again to help
our members and program participants achieve their personal
development goals, be they physical, mental, social and/or
emotional. For some the impact can be truly transformational and
can have an enormous ripple effect on those around them.
While we celebrate each of these personal achievements—it is
the scale at which this happens that makes Canada’s YMCAs truly
unique. Last year, we served 2.3 million Canadians in communities
from coast to coast. This broad reach—and the fact that we’ve
been doing this work for more than 160 years—are all part of the
YMCA’s broader story of how we are building healthy communities.

Bringing People Together
Makes a Positive Impact
In a survey of their health and
fitness members, the YMCA of
Greater Vancouver, working with
the Vancouver Foundation, found
that people who have been with
the YMCA for at least five years
experience many benefits.

YMCA 5-Years

“Being a member of a gym is a commitment
to oneself. Being a member of a YMCA
means more than that. It means being a
member of a community of people that
genuinely care for one another and are
committed to your success.”
YMCA Member Participant

YMCA Programs and Services.
We are much more than gyms, pools
and camps. We know health is much
more than just the absence of illness.
Our programs and services are designed
to go beyond the physical, and involve
social, emotional and mental health.

Did you know?
In 1891, Luther H Gulick,
M.D., proposed the red
triangle for the YMCA logo,
representing our focus on
the growth of the individual
in spirit, mind and body.

Programs that empower
people of all ages and stages
(all stats reflect last year’s numbers)
YMCA Health, Fitness and Aquatics

YMCA Youth Engagement
We helped 11,500 teens and young adults in our
leadership programs feel prepared and confident to
meet the demands and challenges ahead of them.

YMCA Employment Services

Close to 1.1 million Canadians became healthier
through our health, fitness and aquatics programs.
610,200 were children, teens and young adults and
23,300 of them learned life-saving swimming skills.

Retaining meaningful employment is critical to
health outcomes, and we helped 169,000 people
develop the skills needed to apply and get a job.

YMCA Camps

We helped educate 97,200 people on a variety of
topics, such as language, literacy, and high school
curriculum, bringing significant benefits not only to
the individual but also to society.

As Canada’s largest camp provider, we helped
126,100 kids gain valuable life skills, boosting
confidence and self-esteem. Of those, 1,780
were campers with disabilities who were able to
participate fully in camp life, gaining new skills
and developing friendships that last a lifetime.

YMCA Child Care
As Canada’s largest child care provider, parents
trusted us to nurture and care for 70,000 children.

YMCA Education & Training

YMCA Community & Global Initiatives
More than 142,000 people around the world
benefited from Canadian YMCA support. In Canada
we provided opportunities for 166,000 people
to work together on internationally focused
community programming.

We are a charity!
• Last year, we provided $36 million in financial assistance to those who
would otherwise be unable to access our programs and services.
• We financially supported 270,000 people in 2014, positively impacting their health.
• 21% of the children who participated in our Health and Fitness programs
last year were able to do so through our financial assistance programs.
• Last year, our YMCA Strong Kids Campaign raised $13.4 million across Canada
so that every kid can realize their potential, regardless of their financial situation.

Transforming Lives. We know that real change happens one
personal transformation at a time, at all ages and stages, rooted in
local communities. Research studies confirm that belonging to a
supportive network significantly improves the health and well-being
of individuals and families, whatever their age or life stage. Here’s a
snapshot of lives we have helped transform:
For Tony, a child care parent…
“I knew my son was struggling and so did
Ashley, the on-site supervisor at the YMCA
of Oakville’s After School program. Instead
of giving up on him, Ashley took the time
to understand his emotional triggers and
reactions. She explored ways to help him
find the right fit with other kids and worked
with us to develop a positive reinforcement
system to help him learn how to
communicate and cope with his feelings.”

“I know when he
works out here,
he is safe.”
Parent of Jake,
YMCA of Niagara

“The Y encouraged
my daughter
to shine.”
Parent, YMCA of
Western Ontario

For Scott, a 12-year-old with autism…
Financial assistance from the YMCA of
Okanagan not only helps him play afterschool sports; he’s also building social
skills and a sense of independence.
10

The program
“definitely changed
my life. I know
I have a great
future ahead.”
Eric, YMCA Alternative
Suspension Program
participant, YMCA of
Greater Moncton

For Eva, recovering from cancer and a
stroke… “I was at the lowest point in my life,”
she says. After experiencing significant health
issues, Eva was so motivated to improve
her health she became a part-time fitness
instructor at the YMCA of Greater Toronto.
For the Kramer family… The YMCA of Hamilton/
Burlington/Brantford was the place where Cecille
attended a cycling class and made friends with Martha
who soon became her daughter-in-law. Now Cecille,
Martha, her husband Paul, their three sons, and her
parents enjoy a three-generation Y connection.

“I feel supported,
comforted and
loved...I do not want
to go anywhere else.”
Mara, YMCA of Greater
Vancouver

“I gave you a child
broken by bullying
and you built her
back up.”
YMCA Camper parent,
YMCA of Western Ontario

For Sofia, a teen
mother on her
own… At the YMCA
of Greater Vancouver,
Sofia found not only
quality child care for
her infant son but
also personal support
to build a new life:
“I was inspired to
follow my dreams, to
graduate … I wasn’t
alone anymore.”
11

Extending our Reach for Greater Impact.
Through the people, programs and places
of the YMCA, we transform lives one
individual at a time. When we amplify those
transformations across Canada and around
the world, we can have even greater impact
tackling complex social needs.
12

In addition to our core programs, the YMCA leverages its
leadership and expertise to impact a wide range of issues.
Here are just a few activities from 2014:
Prescription to Get Active:

YMCA Healthy Kids Day:

The YMCA of Northern Alberta partnered with Primary
Care Networks to lead a collaborative effort for people
at high risk for health issues. Local physicians write
actual prescriptions for healthy activities to improve
health and prevent disease. Media reviews describe it as
a “brilliant, innovative idea to make Canada healthier.”

This annual national day shone a spotlight on the
importance of improving children’s health and wellbeing. YMCAs hosted community events promoting
healthy, active lifestyles for children and families.

YMCA, PHAC, and AIR MILES®
for Social Change:
This innovative partnership with the Public Health
Agency of Canada and AIR MILES encouraged people to
get more active, seeing a 61.6 per cent increase in visits
when members were offered AIR MILES reward miles.

4Rs Youth Movement:
Focused on issues of identity and its relationship
to reconciliation between Indigenous peoples
and Canadians, this movement unites 14 partner
organizations and an engaged group of passionate
young leaders. YMCA Canada’s participation builds on
President & CEO Scott Haldane’s involvement as Chair
of the National Panel on First Nation Education.

Strong Girls, Strong World project:
YMCA Canada, YWCA Canada and Plan Canada,
with support from Status of Women Canada, are
collaborating to implement 10 young women- and girlled projects across Canada. The projects will empower
young women and girls to work with local stakeholders
to address issues and barriers that impact young
women in their communities.

YMCA Peace Week:
The annual week-long celebration of civic engagement
included the presentation of over 100 YMCA Peace
Medallions to individuals and organizations in
recognition of their community-building work.

2014 emergency appeal responses:
YMCAs respond when disaster strikes, and in 2014 the
Canadian YMCA provided support to YMCA of Ukraine,
YMCA of Sierra Leone, YMCA of Liberia and YMCA of the
Philippines in their time of need.

YMCA World Council:
Every four years the World YMCA movement comes
together to discuss contemporary world issues. In 2014,
1,300 YMCA leaders from 83 countries came together at
the YMCA of the Rockies (USA) for the 18th World
Council. The focus was strengthening our global
commitment to empowering young people everywhere,
including the 28 million engaged with the YMCA.

Contributing our expertise
We provided leadership to many other partnerships,
including the Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance of
Canada (CDPAC), the National Lifesaving Society, the
National Youth Serving Agencies (NYSA) Committee,
National Health & Fitness Day, CBC Live Right Now, and
‘Healthy Me Week’.

Did you know?
The YMCA grew up
with Canada starting
in 1851, changing
and introducing
programs needed
by the communities
it served; a practice
that continues today.

The YMCA played a significant
role in supporting Canadian
troops that served in the First
and Second World Wars,
providing recreational,
educational, and moral
support, as well as life-saving
swimming skills.
We were proud to help grow
the Canadian Pacific Railway.
Many YMCAs were built
alongside railway lines,
offering railway workers
recreation, reading rooms,
literacy programs, night school
classes and accommodation.
Three Canadian
universities—York University,
Carleton University and
Concordia University—
evolved from our YMCA
education programs.

In 1895, volleyball was
invented by YMCA instructor
William G Morgan.

In 1906, the YMCA launched
the first “Learn to Swim”
campaign with the goal of
drown-proofing all kids.

14

Basketball was
invented by Canadian
Dr. James Naismith,
working at the YMCA
International Training
School in 1891.
