The YMCA is coming to Petrolia!
After an extensive community consultation process, including 10 individual stakeholder sessions, the YMCA is pleased to announce that on January 22, 2018, the Town of Petrolia approved the YMCA’s proposal to assume contracted operation of The Centre.
The arrangement is similar to those in place for other municipal services including management of the waste water treatment plant, and artistic direction for the Victoria Playhouse Petrolia and ensures that:
Petrolia residents and participants across the region will have access to The Centre through membership and day use passes.
Learn more about the project and the YMCA's proposal on our Frequently Asked Questions page.
Hiring for all Centre positions will begin immediately, with a job fair specifically for current Centre staff scheduled for January 30th and interviews running January 30 to February 2.
Information on the Job Fair and the opportunity to apply to the YMCA will be provided directly to Town staff and posted in staff areas at The Centre.
Information about the YMCA’s membership and program offerings will be posted to this website in the coming weeks.
