A Message To the Fort Erie Community:

We’re committed to delivering YMCA Health & Fitness programs in Fort Erie now and in the future. While we expect to close the EJ Freeland YMCA building this fall, all YMCA programs will continue at the EJ Freeland YMCA as planned throughout the Summer of 2019. YMCA members will also have the option to transfer their membership to an alternate YMCA of Niagara branch.

Do you have feedback or questions; email us at Forterie.feedback@niagara.ymca.ca

We need your help to shape the future of YMCA health and fitness programs in Fort Erie. We’re reaching out to YMCA members, Fort Erie residents, and YMCA staff and volunteers to inform our plan. Register today for one our focus group sessions or participate in our online survey opening on May 13th.
