YMCA Chilliwack community centre project

A Special Place

The Chilliwack YMCA is a special place. On any given day you’ll see seniors laughing, kids learning to swim, teens getting the chance to lead and volunteers giving back.

This tightly connected community has been doing daily life together for more than 40 years. That is why we wanted to give this community a bright, open and new space where families both young and old can continue to grow and thrive for generations to come.

Let’s build this community together!


The New Chilliwack YMCA

The expanded Chilliwack YMCA is 36,700 square feet, 25% bigger than the current facility. This enables us to help 50% more people to reach their potential.
