At the YMCA, everyone is treated fairly
Because we believe everyone has the right to well-being, regardless of their financial situation, The YMCAs of Québec has an “Access for All” policy.
Access for All gives people with limited financial means access to our community or fitness activities at reduced cost. Be sure to ask our welcome staff about the “Access for All” rate. The YMCA will be pleased to study your application in complete confidentiality.
Applications must be accompanied by the following documents:
Proof of gross annual household income
Proof of income for all members of your household (all those living at the same address, except roommates). Here are the documents to be provided, as applicable:
- claim booklet if you are receiving employment assistance (social assistance)
- most recent federal (T-451) or provincial (TPF-98) tax assessment
- confirmation of employment insurance.
To obtain a copy of your federal notice of tax assessment (T-451), call 1-800-622-6232. For the provincial form

Assistance is provided for a period of one year. To renew, you must submit a new request along with all required documents.
The discounts offered under the Access for All policy cannot be combined with any other discounts at The YMCAs of Québec. For adults, discounts apply to the adult “network” rate for programs, activities, courses and any other services. For those under the age of 18, the discounts apply to the price for their age category. The YMCAs of Québec reserves the right to limit discounts on some classes or programs.
Supporting documents will be returned to you after verification.
Review of a decision
The YMCA reserves the right to review, at any time, the eligibility of a person who has received a discount under the Access for All policy.
The YMCA reserves the right to refuse any incomplete or inaccurate application.
