Welcome To The Rotary Foundation (Canada)! 
"To Do Good In The World"

The Rotary Foundation (Canada) is a Canadian federally chartered corporation and Canadian registered charity supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of The Rotary Foundation who share its vision of a better world.

Passionate about our Environment

I write this from a sun-filled office in Ancaster, Ontario, the window is cracked open, and the birds are busy filling the air with many melodies. As part of the Niagara Escarpment, we have over 110 waterfalls in the area, and a vast network of hiking trails and ecosystems which led to the designation in 1990 by UNESCO as a World Biosphere Reserve, making it one of twelve in Canada.

Meet TRF Canada President Eva Vida

I have been a Rotarian since 1992. I am a member of the Rotary Club of Winnipeg and have held positions within my Rotary district 5550 and our Rotary Zone, including District Foundation Chair, District Governor, and Regional Rotary Foundation Coordinator. I previously served as the VP of TRF Canada and as a board member for several years.

TRF Canada Annual Receipt

The Rotary Foundation Canada has carefully considered our donors' numerous requests and is changing to an annual receipting process for contributions starting in calendar year 2024.  Donors will receive an acknowledgment for every contribution at the time the gift is made. Additionally, in early 2025, one itemized receipt will be provided that includes all contributions made to TRFC in the 2024 calendar year. An annual receipt for gifts made in 2023 will not be provided, as receipts for those contributions will already have been processed.

Creating hope and alleviating poverty

An Opportunity To Care

The holiday season is particularly significant in the area of Disease Prevention and Treatment.  We reach out to family and friends wherever they may be to reconnect the caring of health and happiness we have for all.

Set a Goal and Achieve the Goal  

This story began in 2010 with the Rotary Club of Dundas’ Swim to End Polio. Thie Convery, a Dundas resident, splashed in at Niagara-on-the-Lake in August of that year as part of her efforts to support Rotary International’s efforts to end polio in the world.

Dreaming of Local and Global Positive Peace 

by Christine Rendell and Brian Carnahan - Rotary Club of Calgary East, District 5360
When Brian and I first discussed our Rotary Legacy, the Promoting Peace Area of Focus came to mind immediately. We agreed that without conflict prevention or resolution, many of the projects and programs that Rotary has around the world would be at risk or withdrawn completely.
