Canada & Locally

We are firm believers that change starts at home in our communities. That is why we have developed a full program here in Canada to connect and engage citizens in topics that matter. This includes programs to welcome newcomers to the local area, education events on global justice topics, travel & learning exchanges, and an annual award to recognize volunteers. We invite you to join us!

Horizons’ Treasurer, Mike Dupuis, presents a plaque to Beth Selby, President of the Rotary Club of Cobourg, while Patricia Rebolledo, Executive Director of Horizons, looks on.

Horizons of Friendship recognizes the Rotary Club of Cobourg, World Community Service Committee for their generous grant to make much needed repairs to our Thrift Shop.

Over 50 volunteers work in our Thrift Shop from Monday to Saturday, and approximately 100 local residents visit the shop daily. Through the support of the Rotary Club of Cobourg, these improvements have provided a safer, more positive cleaner working environment for Horizons’ volunteers and greater accessibility for people with walkers and strollers that access the shops daily.
