Photography Policy

Public Spaces

The YMCA of Saskatoon recognizes that changes in the way people communicate and share their stories with each other has made photography a common part of everyday life.

We also recognize that the advent of inexpensive, high-quality digital photography equipment has created a new, ubiquitous behaviour whereby many parents extensively document the lives of their children.Therefore, it is not inappropriate in the public spaces of our facility to use photography to celebrate successes, share special moments or encourage others to pursue healthy lifestyles.

However, if you do choose to use your smartphone, or any other camera, we ask that you show courtesy toward other users of the facility and exhibit discretion in what you capture in the scene.
Please limit your photos to your own activities, and make every effort to protect the privacy of others.

Private Spaces

It remains forbidden to take photos or videos anywhere there is a reasonable expectation of privacy, including all YMCA change rooms, showers, steam rooms, saunas, family change rooms, bathrooms, etc. Contravention of this rule is grounds for immediate cancellation of your membership and prohibition from future use of the YMCA, and may result in further action by the Saskatoon Police Service.
