Important Information regarding the closure & Membership fees

November 10, 2020 – On November 10, we received notification from the Province of Manitoba that all non-essential businesses in Manitoba, including our four branches, would be included in a mandatory, province-wide closure effective November 12. This is expected to be in place for two-four weeks, or until government lifts its restrictions.  

This is part of their response to the recent spike in coronavirus cases in Manitoba. This is not related to operations at the YMCA-YWCA of Winnipeg specifically, but rather is a broad measure from the Province to attempt to reduce coronavirus cases in Manitoba.  

Memberships 

All memberships have been placed on a temporary hold, which means no fees will be withdrawn from your account effective November 11, 2020. Please note that membership fees will begin again as soon as we reopen any of our branches – remember, your membership is valid at all four locations.
