Extended Hours February 20th
We are happy to announce the start of a new pilot program for 2019. Anytime we are closed on a Monday due to a statutory holiday, the Compass Food Bank Market will open for extended hours the following Wednesday. This is to better support people that work during the day and need access to evening food bank hours.

Films & Fellowship
We are proud to announce a new program that will be running twice a month at The Compass.
The program runs from 5 - 9 p.m. every other Saturday night and is an opportunity for people to catch up, have dinner, watch a family-fun film and enjoy a few snacks. The program has already run four times and the group is growing. Drop by and watch the calendar for dates!
What Clients & Volunteers Say
Thank you to all the volunteers and staff. You do a wonderful job in helping anyone in our community who truly struggles.
This is an absolutely incredible team!! The service they provide is so necessary, and definitely helps the community run smoother.
My 5 years as a volunteer with the Compass have been some of my happiest. I feel very privileged that in my role here, I have been allowed to get to know so many wonderful people. There are huge rewards too. The sense of fulfillment is amazing and the warmth and gratitude of the clients is priceless.
The kindest group of people you could ever meet volunteer at The Compass.
Most helpful community and outreach centre I had ever experienced.
Staff are amazing! They make you feel like a normal person and not someone who is struggling to get by. The staff make this place!
