Immediate Need for Volunteers at The Compass

Do you enjoy working in a friendly, interactive atmosphere that offers help and hope to our community? The Compass is in immediate need of volunteers for all our shifts. You can sign up as you go or volunteer on a regular schedule; whatever works best for you.

The Compass Men’s Group Petition got a Response from Parliment

You probably remember the Men’s Group trip to Ottawa where MP Sven Spengemann presented their petition to Parliament on 18th Nov 2016. They received a response that we wanted to share. 

Here’s the Petition

And here’s the response

Congratulations to the Men’s group and the lead of this activity Richard Antonio for their dedicated effort to champion ongoing poverty relief initiatives and programs. Richard is now the Chair the Peel Povery Action Group as a result of his action and interest in this topic. We expect more good things to flow from this group effort, and certainly acknowledge the increase in awareness among volunteers and clients at The Compass.
