Giving Tuesday - A Day of Global Giving

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that happens each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year it will be taking place on November 29th.

It is a time when Canadians, charities and businesses come together to celebrate giving and participate in activities that support charities and not-for-profits. Last year, over 4,700 charities and business’s participated and over 5 million Canadians showed their support.

After a tremendous effort from our members, volunteers and supporters, The Canadian Canoe Museum was unfortunately not selected to be a finalist in the AVIVA Community Fund project this year. However, the staff and volunteers at the Canoe Museum are still working towards raising the funds necessary to purchase our very own van, trailer hitch package, and enclosed trailer. With Giving Tuesday quickly approaching we are asking for your help to get there!

The purchase of a van, trailer hitch package and enclosed trailer will assist with the transportation of children to summer paddling day camps and multi-day canoe trips, travel to schools to provide outreach programming, transport of artifacts to stage exhibits at partner museums, transport of watercraft and interactive educational opportunities to community events and to tow a enclosed trailer to camps and canoe trip launch sites.

The Canadian Canoe Museum is committed to leading locally, reaching out nationally, learning from and with First Peoples in Canada and bringing our collection of watercraft to life to share the historical and cultural importance of the canoe.

On November 29th, support the Museum by donating on our Giving Tuesday webpage. Or give us a call at 705-748-9153 to make your donation.
