Local Lions Initiatives in Alberta
The Lions Cavalcade came into existence in 1987 when it was felt that as Lions we needed to establish a highly visible province wide fund raising program to raise funds to help support Diabetes Canada with one of their programs to raise funds for Diabetes Awareness throughout Alberta and NWT.
From guiding their handlers through their daily lives to getting help when it's needed most, Dog Guides play a crucial role in the lives of Canadians with disabilities. Lions Foundation of Canada's mission is to assist Canadians with a medical or physical disability by providing them Dog Guides at no cost.
C-2 Lions Youth Camp
The Lions Youth Camp has been developed over the years to provide facilities for youth groups to enjoy the outdoors and the fellowship that this brings. Our objective is to enable children of all ages to use the Camp at a cost that ensures that the largest number of children may participate regardless of financial means.
Lions Quest Canada
Lions Quest Canada is a registered charitable organization dedicated to fostering positive youth development by producing and disseminating effective tools to empower and unite caring adults in all aspects of young people’s lives. These tools include innovative and well-researched programs, products, training and services for youth, parents, educators, and community leaders.
Lions of Canada fund for LCIF
In 1968 – 50 years ago – our International leaders founded our Lions Clubs International Foundation. Since then, LCIF has given over US$1 billion in grants. Of those grants, many have come to Canada to help Districts and Clubs serve their communities. In fact, Canadian Lions have received more than we have given.
