Membership Info

Your Sault Ste. Marie YMCA membership gives you access to more than 100 programs and services throughout the year. You can also take advantage of more convenient hours of operation. Whether you’re a night owl or an early morning riser, we accommodate all tastes!


Building Fee
Your one-time building fee is an investment in future renovations and equipment upgrades for your Y. This fee is required on all new memberships and is due at the time of joining. A new membership is a newly registered member or a renewal of a membership that has lapsed for more then 60 days.

Two Adult Family $80.00
Adult, Senior and One Adult Family $55.00

Plus applicable taxes, the building fee is non-refundable and not tax deductible.

Payment Options
You can pay for your membership in a number of ways:

Paid In Full
You may pay your annual membership in full with cash, cheque, Interac, Visa or MasterCard.

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
Monthly membership payments are debited from your bank account or credit card on the first of each month. Your membership is ongoing. Your membership will continue unless the YMCA is notified in writing that you wish to make a change to or cancel your membership.

Membership Assistance
Membership assistance provides support to those who wish to become members but are unable to pay the full fee. Support for this program comes from the Sault Family YMCA.

“No Strings Attached!" 
At the Y, you do not have to worry about being locked into a contract. Memberships are continuous and flexible. If your membership has lapsed for 60 days or more, you are considered a new member.
