A National Celebration of Peace

YMCA Peace Week is a time when we celebrate the presence of peace in our communities, and reflect on the peace-building work that happens all year both inside and outside the YMCA.


This year’s Peace Week will take place on November 17th to November 24th.


YMCA Peace Week calls people to:  Build community. Act for peace.data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAPABAP///wAAACH5BAEKAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAICRAEAOw==‚Äč

YMCA Peace Medal

Each year, YMCAs across Canada celebrate acts of peace by recognizing individuals and groups who, without any special resources, status, wealth or position, have demonstrated a commitment to building peace within their community or communities elsewhere in the world.  Peacemakers across Canada will receive special recognition and a medal at a ceremony. Ceremonies are held in YMCAs across Canada to recognize peacemakers.


Peacemakers are selected through a nomination process. To nominate a Peacemaker, please click here. Nominations are due by Friday, October 19th.  


The peace ceremony will take place at the Peace Breakfast on Monday, November 19th.
