Coldest Night of the Year - February 25, 2017

The Coldest Night of the Year is 24 days away! On January 25th, we had our official launch at The Grande Event Centre, where we heard from Executive Director Dennis Chippa, Board Chair Chuck Poltz, and Honourary Event Chair Al McDonald. The event was well covered by local media:

We are currently recruiting volunteers for Coldest night! If anyone would like to volunteer on the day of the event, please call Joanne at 705-474-7687.

If you are interested in donating, walking, or starting your own team, check out our event website:

We are still looking for sponsors, so if you know any businesses or organizations who would be interested in sponsoring CNOY 2017, please have them contact us!

We are thrilled to have Rebuilt Resources back again this year as our presenting sponsor, and The Grande Event Centre as our start/finish location sponsor. 

New Building Update

We are happy to announce that the Board of Directors has approved the final plans for the new building, and we are ready to go to tender for the renovations. Construction will begin as soon as possible, and should be completed by this time next year, if not earlier.
Just a reminder that you can now sign up for volunteer shifts online at our page!

All shifts for 2017 have been added, so if you are a member of our volunteer team, please feel free to log in and sign up. However, we ask that you limit yourself to one or two shift per week so that all of our volunteers have an opportunity to sign up.

Please try to check the site on a regular basis, as shifts open up as people cancel or reschedule. 

If you are unable to make it to your shift, please give us as much notice as possible so that we can fill your spot. Don't forget to give up the shift on so that others have the opportunity to take it. 

If you are part of a team that comes in to volunteer, we are working towards having a Team Captain responsible for signing the whole team up online. If you are a Team Captain, please contact us so that we can work with you to get the process up and running if you have not already.

If you are interested in volunteering and are not already on our volunteer email list, please contact Joanne in our front office.
