Not sure what a Lion is…… or what we do?

We are ordinary people who come from all walks of life. We might have any type of job or  career or may even be retired.

We join together in fellowship to serve humanity without thought to race, creed,  nationality, religion or politics.

The motto of all Lions Clubs is “WE SERVE”, and each club decides where  and how they will serve.

Lions are people just like YOU.  You can make a difference in your region and the world.

Please consider joining us to help make a positive and lasting partnership in your community.

Our Club

Our club #014615 was chartered April 23, 1970 as the "North Oshawa Lions Club" and now is one of three Lions Clubs in Oshawa. We are now one of 54 clubs in Lions District 16 of Multiple District "A".

Activities

We operate three Young Offender Detention Homes and a Drop in Center in Ontario for the Provincial Government through our charitable foundation The Murray McKinnon Foundation.

We help support many groups in the area such as Big Brothers/Sisters, Boys and Girls Club of Durham, Simcoe Hall Settlement House Christmas Fund, Grandview Children's Treatment Centre and the Salvation Army Christmas Fund, and also have assisted individuals with special needs.

Celebrating Graduation From Lions Dog Training School

An official Lions Clubs International Eyeglass Recycling Program provides recycled eyewear free of charge to people in developing countries. Our club has helped collect eye glasses for this program for many years sending them off to our Canadian Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centre.

Also like most of the Lions in our District we support our
Lions Clubs Camp Kirk Foundation. This is a Lions District 16 project located on about 100 acres near Kirkfield, Ontario, which the Foundation owns and maintains. Camp Kirk which is a camp for children with learning disabilities is operated during the summer season on this property by the "Friends of the Learning Disabled".

Fund Raising

Like all charitable groups, the ability of our club to assist those individuals in need and support the many deserving organizations and projects, is totally dependent on the success of our fund raising activities.

The largest fund raiser we have had was our annual Car Draw and for the last few years this has been a Classic Car Draw. 
Check out the Car Link for car and winners from the past.

Another fund raiser that we have carried on for many years has been the marketing of plastic wrap.  This we provide to many groups such as hockey or soccer teams schools or choirs, etc. who in turn use it to raise needed funds for their groups
.

Of course at Christmas we have the
Lions Christmas Cakes which are a favourite during the festive season and make ideal gifts for family and friends.  Check out our link above.

If you would like any of these just get hold of any of the contacts listed anywhere on this site and they will we happy to help you, or email us at: info@northoshawalions.org.

 Pet Valu Walk for Guide Dogs Virtual walk Sunday May 30th 2021!

Now more than ever, Dog Guides is relying on the generous support of its donors and partners to meet its goal of giving Canadians a new leash on life.

This year, we may not be able to walk together in person but we can still make an impact by coming together for Dog Guides! Register, fundraise and log those kilometres so that together, we can walk across Canada to create awareness about Dog Guides and fundraise to assist Lions Foundation of Canada in providing life-changing Dog Guides to Canadians with disabilities.

Our Goal? To "walk" the length of Canada - 5,514 km! Our National Virtual Walk Date is Sunday, May 30th, 2021. We will start off in Canada’s most easterly point, Cape Spear in Newfoundland and cross the finish line in Mt. St. Elias in the Yukon.

You can participate by connecting your Fitbit device, downloading the Strava or Map My Fitness App or manually logging the distance you travel.
Everytime you get out and active- whether you go for a walk or run, grab your bike to go for a ride, go on a wheelchair accessible trail, or dance around in your living room- we can work together to achieve our goal!

LIONS FOUNDATION OF CANADA DOG GUIDES

Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides is a national charitable foundation that was created by the Lions of Canada. Its mission is to assist Canadians with a medical or physical disability by providing them Dog Guides at no cost.

Since 1983, Lions Foundation of Canada has been providing specially trained Dog Guides to men, women and children from coast to coast. In addition to training Dog Guides for people who are blind or visually impaired, Dog Guides are also trained to meet the needs of Canadians with hearing, medical and physical disabilities, epilepsy, autism and type 1 diabetes.

All Dog Guides and required training, including transportation and accommodation, are provided at no cost to qualified applicants. It costs approximately $25,000 per dog to raise and train.
The Lions Foundation does not receive any government funding and relies on the support of fundraising events like the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides.




WHAT IS THE PET VALU WALK FOR DOG GUIDES?

The Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides is a national fundraising walk held in approximately 300 communities across Canada.

It raises funds to help train Dog Guides for Canadians with visual, hearing, medical or physical disabilities. Each Walk is organized by local volunteers with support from Lions Foundation of Canada.

To date, the Walk has raised more than $18 million! Communities host Walks in the Spring and Fall.
