Carlingwood Mall YMCA-YWCA

The HICG has been approached by the YMCA-YWCA to tell us about the possibility of a new Y opening at the Carlingwood Mall, contingent on getting enough interest from members of the community. Here is the information that they have provided:


The YMCA-YWCA of the National Capital Region is excited to share that it has been given an opportunity to lease a 23,500 sq. ft. space at the Carlingwood Mall. This space will be extensively renovated to offer strength training and aerobic conditioning equipment, group exercise classes, children’s recreational programs, a pool for leisure swims, aquafit classes, and children’s swim lessons, inviting social spaces and child minding services.

But the Y needs help to make this a reality! The YMCA-YWCA has 60 days – until September 30 – to pre-sell enough memberships to make the Carlingwood Mall Y a viable operation and to plan its opening date in January, 2014.

The Y must remain committed to being responsible financial stewards while continuing to meet the needs of the community. If the YMCA-YWCA meets its target, it will move forward at the Carlingwood Mall. If the Y is unable to reach its target, it will not be able to proceed.

If you want the Y back in Carlingwood, you can pre-register to become a member of the new Carlingwood Mall Y, and tell your friends, family and co-workers about the Y’s plans.

To learn more, visit Y staff at the Carlingwood Mall (booth at main entrance #1 from August 1 to September 30), call 613-237-1320 ext. 2999, or email
