The Guy-Favreau Y centre
Much more than a fitness centre!
The Guy-Favreau Y centre focuses its efforts not only on improving the health and
well-being of its members, but also on improving the quality of life of the community.
The centre is involved in many different outreach activities in the east end of
downtown, from Saint-Laurent to Frontenac, where hundreds of thousands of people
from all walks of life live and work.
We believe in equal opportunity
Troubled youth and seniors are specific target clienteles of the Guy-Favreau Y centre.
Over the years, the Y has joined forces with many different organizations to take
more effective action in the Centre-Sud district. The Guy-Favreau Y centre has also
introduced a very beneficial program; the “Adopt a School” program supports elementary
schools in low-income neighbourhoods and provides their students with incentives
to stay in school. With financial help from Desjardins Asset Management and its
partners, the Y collaborates with the la Commission scolaire de Montréal in setting
up after-school and enrichment programs, organizes school outings and provides the
schools with computer and athletic equipment.
Physical activity = health
The Guy-Favreau Y centre has a long been recognized as a state-of-the-art fitness
centre serving an active clientele. With its pool, indoor track and wide variety
of equipment, the centre encourages healthy minds and bodies!
The Guy-Favreau Y centre enjoys the outstanding support of nearly 20 volunteers
and several donors. Close to 3,300 people use its programs and services every year.
