Wondering where you can go to party in your red and white? Look no further. Here are five local Canada day events you can attend this weekend:


Newmarket Canada Day


Begin your Saturday with a pancake breakfast at Riverwalk Commons before making your way over to Fairy Lake for an afternoon of family fun and entertainment that will include rides, inflatables, food vendors, shows and musical performances. End the day by enjoying a firework display at George Richardson Park compete with live music and, of course, more food.

4 Ways to Volunteer in the GTA this Spring


Posted on Mar 23, 2017

Ways to Volunteer


The warmer air isn’t the only thing that can make you feel good this spring – so can giving back to your community. If you have some free afternoons or weekends coming up, why not spend some of your time volunteering for a local organization? Volunteering is often a very rewarding experience that can help to improve the lives of those living in your community. Whether you are a high school student needing to complete your volunteer hours before you graduate or just someone who wants to make a positive impact in your community, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer with great organizations right here in the GTA:


Habitat for Humanity


For those looking for hands-on work, Habitat with Humanity provides volunteers with the opportunity to build houses in the GTA from the ground up. No experience is required, just be prepared to get your hands dirty! Their online sign-up system makes it super simple to find a day, time and build-site location that is convenient for you.


Ontario SPCA


Are you an animal lover? Spend some time walking dogs and cleaning cages at your local SPCA. These dogs and cats are often on their own for extended periods of time so a little love will go a long way. The minimum age to volunteer is 14 and full training is provided, making this a great volunteer opportunity for students. Plus, there are locations all over the Greater Toronto Area, so it will be easy to find one that’s close to you.


Meals on Wheels


If you have access to a vehicle, consider helping your local Meals on Wheels program. As a volunteer, you will be delivering meals to the elderly living in and around your neighborhood. This is a great opportunity to not only ensure that those who depend on the program receive their daily meals, but to also build meaningful and lasting relationships with the people you are helping.


Canadian Cancer Society – Daffodil Month


Every April, volunteers set up shop in grocery stores and malls across Canada to sell fresh daffodil and daffodil pins to benefit the Canadian Cancer Society. It is an annual tradition that has helped to raise millions of dollars towards helping reduce the burden of cancer on Canadians. Volunteers are still needed for this year’s upcoming Daffodil Month, so sign up now!

If you’re in the York Region area, the NewRoads Automotive Group holds several community events each year and we’re always looking for great volunteers!  See what we’re up to in the community here.
