The YMCA of Greater Toronto is working to reduce its carbon footprint and increase their resiliency so they can continue supporting the community even (and especially) during times of emergency. District energy was considered during the design of the charity's Cooper Koo Family YMCA in the West Don Lands of Toronto. This facility was a legacy project of the Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan American Games Athletes' Village. Waterfront Toronto's initial plan for the neighbourhood included district energy. A few district energy pipes were even installed before the plan was abandoned to meet tight construction timelines. With many new developments planned for the neighbourhood, the YMCA is currently engaging partners in the community to build on Waterfront Toronto's work to realize a resilient and low-carbon community energy system for the West Don Lands.
