Welcome to the home of the Canadian National Day of Service Foundation. We are a charitable foundation whose purpose is to honor and celebrate Canadians who serve their communities in official and unofficial ways.
National Day of Service was declared on September 11, 2011 by Prime Minister Stephen Harper to give a positive focus to a tragic date. The foundation’s goal is to bring attention to all the wonderful work Canadians do for their neighbours and communities.
Canaday Make a Difference? Canada Says Yes!
On one day each year, we stage a celebration event to honor Canadian heroes – those who perform miracles as first responders and other rescue personnel and those who give of themselves in charity and community service every day.
