The Great Canadian Giving Challenge 2020


The NDG Community Council is, since 1942, working to improve NDG residents' quality of life. Since March, we have worked tirelessly to make sure no one is left behind. We have developed a Breaking Social Isolation program to connect with residents online and through the phone, we are doing information and referral on call and also doing wellness calls. The Council is also offering free tax clinics to help residents living with modest or low-income. Along with our partners, we identify issues in the community and find solutions. Giving to the NDG Community Council is supporting the community's most vulnerable members in many different ways!

  • Support our information and referral service

Every dollar donated by an individual online to the NDG Community Council in June via,, or CanadaHelps is an automatic entry for the Council to win a $20,000 donation.

What impact would $20,000 have on the NDG Community Council?

The NDG Community Council has noticed a big difficulty during the COVID pandemic: many NDG residents are isolated due to a lack of technology. Either they cannot afford the material and the Internet connection or they do not have the necessary knowledge to be able to use it. A 20 000$ donation could help the Council to connect residents to the Internet in some of the most vulnerable areas in NDG, provide laptops and tablets to seniors, families or isolated individuals and organise training and workshops to develop technological literacy. Allowing vulnerable NDG residents to be better connected to their community is of the utmost importance in this pandemic situation and should be a priority for the near future.

What is The Great Canadian Giving Challenge? It is a National public contest to benefit any registered Canadian charity. Every $1 donated to a registered charity in June via, automatically enters the charity to win an additional $20,000 donation. The grand prize draw will take place on July 1st, Canada Day, and one lucky charity will receive this new grand prize of $20,000. CanadaHelps knows that the charitable sector has been hit hard by COVID-19, and has doubled the prize this year!
