YRASP update
Dear YRASP (Youth Recreation and Sports Program) community partners, The YMCA of Southwestern Ontario would like to thank you for your continued support of the YRASP program. The program would not be able to support youth in our community through sports and recreation without your assistance. 

This is to inform you of a change coming to the YRASP program. In the coming weeks, the YMCA of Southwestern Ontario will be transferring the program administration to the County of Lambton.  Nothing changes for families in terms of still being able to access funding for programs. This change only means that rather than families contacting YMCA, they will instead be reaching out to the County of Lambton directly. Once a family contacts the County of Lambton, they will then be the ones processing approval letters that come to you.

The change for you means that effective January 1, 2023, all communication, and invoices will need to go to the County of Lambton.  The new contact information is as follows.


E-mail: childcareadmin@county-lambton.on.ca

Phone: 519-344-2062 ext 2201


With the change happening for the beginning of the new year, we are asking that all invoices are submitted to us no later than Dec. 16th, 2022. Please ensure that you have these to us by this date, so that we can process your payment before the transition of the program.


Attached is a new postcard that provides YRASP information, as well as the County of Lambton’s contact information.  These are currently being printed and will be available for community distribution in the near future to help spread the word.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Nick Hext at [email protected] or Jackie Sanderson at jackie.sanderson@county-lambton.on.ca.

Thank you,

The YMCA of Southwestern Ontario


The Sarnia Sting is proud to announce the launch of the Sting Assists Community Fund. Sting Assists was built on best practices in sport and community philanthropy, with a made-in-Sarnia-Lambton approach. Our ongoing goal is to help people in need in our community and make the Sarnia Lambton area a better place to live for all. The fund collects donations through community outreach events such as golf tournaments, 50/50 draws, jersey raffles and various online auctions.
Jackpot City - Sarnia
Jackpot Time, formally known as Jackpot City and Bingo Country, has been serving up gaming in the city of Sarnia for more than 30 years, and has raised over $15 million dollars for regional charities. Jackpot Time is in the business of continuing that proud tradition, while providing a full-service entertainment experience that's relevant to our community today. In partnership with OLG, we have dramatically overhauled the gaming floor, adding a fully licensed diner, a sports lounge, and a selection of electronic gaming machines.
