CANADIAN NATIONAL DAY OF SERVICE FOUNDATION

The Canadian National Day of Service Foundation was established in January 2013 with the aim of building activities to recognize and leverage the spirit of volunteerism in Canada.  We are a charitable foundation whose purpose is to honor and celebrate Canadians who serve their communities in official and unofficial ways.

 

National Day of Service was declared on September 11, 2011 by Prime Minister Stephen Harper to give a positive focus to a tragic date. The foundation’s goal is to bring attention to all the wonderful work Canadians do for their neighbours and communities.

 

Canada officially recognizes September 11 as our National Day of Service (PDF version of Bill S-209).
