Community Service Event

Sunday November 22nd
10:00am - 12:00pm
Come and spend some time giving back to the local community.  The PCMA Canada East Chapter and the Canadian Innovation Conference is proud to provide time for attendees to give back to the host city by participating in a Holiday themed hands on project benefiting the less fortunate.

CIC delegates will have the opportunity to make the upcoming holidays brighter for families in need with a project of decorating Holiday stockings for a well deserving service organization.  All materials will be provided by Tourism Toronto and light refreshments will be served.  Participants will craft and personalize special holiday stockings that will be included in Food Hampers to a needy family.  Your registration fee ($25), for this event, will also be donated to the chosen charity. 

Volunteering is fulfilling, rewarding and fun – PLUS you’ll be meeting other industry colleagues while giving back!

Eva’s staff work with each homeless youth to develop a personalized action plan. This plan is designed to empower each young person to achieve both short and long-term personal and career goals.  

Please bring gently used work appropriate clothing, gloves, hats & scarfs; a collection box will be available at registration and will help these youth put their best foot forward at their workplace or job interview.
