YMCA Coquitlam community centre

A Special Place

We believe everyone needs a safe and welcoming place to call their own. That’s why we are building the Bettie Allard YMCA in Coquitlam to be an inclusive home away from home for all people.

The Bettie Allard YMCA will be that special place for underserved families, new immigrants, young children and older adults in this rapidly growing Tri-Cities neighbourhood.

Let’s build this community together!

The New Bettie Allard YMCA

This 55,000 square-foot modern centre of community will give more than 16,000 children, teens, adults, and seniors each year the opportunity to be healthy, connected and engaged.
