Who We Are…

Kin Canada is an all-Canadian service organization made up of active community volunteers. Working together, members are enhancing the quality of life in their communities by promoting service, social interaction, positive values and national pride. Kin clubs support cystic fibrosis (CF) research and fund local projects across the country. In an effort to meet the needs of all members we are exploring new membership types including Kin Campus Club Members and Associate Members.

Help Your Community…

If you’d like to give something back to your community, our clubs are the perfect choice! Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin clubs support local projects such as playgrounds, soccer complexes, ball fields and ice rinks across the country. Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin clubs are the country’s largest all-Canadian service groups. It is estimated that since 1920, Kin Canada has raised $1.5 billion for Canadian communities and charities.

Develop personally…

It’s very satisfying to be a member of the Kin organization. You’ll be proud of the work you do for others and pleased with the personal benefits that result. You may become a better leader or more of a team player. You’ll find yourself more relaxed in dealing with groups, your presentation skills will improve, and you’ll become a better public speaker. Plus, you’ll have a chance to network with people from a wide variety of businesses.

Make life-long friendships..

Kinsmen and Kinettes come from all walks of life, so you’ll enjoy being part of a diverse and spirited group. And, like most members, you’ll make lifetime friendships that extend far beyond your own club.

Have a whole lot of fun…

Although the Kin organization dates back more than 80 years, there’s nothing old-fashioned about what Kinsmen and Kinettes do. Activities and events are lively, interesting and fun. Fundraising projects get you into the community, and they’re always rewarding and entertaining. So join a Kinsmen, Kinette, Kin, or Kinsmen & Kinette club today, and brighten the horizon – for yourself and your community.

Make a Difference…

If you want to help your community; grow and learn; make life-long friendships; have some fun; and make a difference – join Kin.
