The YMCA is a charity that provides health, education and social services. It contributes to the mix of public, private, and charitable programs and facilities available to Canadians. As well, the YMCA has always been there to catch people who "fall between the cracks" of public systems and the marketplace.
YMCA programs are responses to community needs. That is why a YMCA can look very different from community to community, country to country, and generation to generation. As needs change, so does the YMCA's program offerings.
City of Edmonton - Clareview District Development (Cardinal Collins High School Academic Centre)
Several exciting projects are now underway at Clareview District Park. The City of Edmonton is developing and constructing outdoor natural grass and artificial turf sports fields, park spaces and a multi-purpose recreation centre.
And, Edmonton Catholic Schools and the Edmonton Public Library are collaborating with the City to build a high school completion centre and the Clareview Library as part of the recreation centre – a first-of-its-kind facility in Edmonton.
