"Social and emotional learning (SEL) is increasingly recognized as playing a critical role in the promotion of positive mental health and the prevention of mental health disorders among children and youth."

Lions Quest Canada has been building social and emotional competencies in children in youth for over 30 years. The pandemic has had a negative impact on mental wellbeing - it's more important than ever to support our children and youth.

Who’s A Good Boy (Or Girl)? You tell us! When you donate $20 or more, you can suggest a name for one of our newest Dog Guides. So we can finally answer the question: who’s a good boy (or girl)? Thank you to Frank Apa and Lexus of Oakville for providing a match donation of $20,000. The Dog Guide that you name will grow up to train in one of our seven programs and make an enormous difference in the life of a fellow Canadian.

Thank you Lion Don for looking after our run again this year. As well, thank you to his wife Martha for doing such a great job on registration. To all the volunteers it was the best run we have had due to your time in making this happen.
Due to the run having to be virtual the last year, many learned how to do online donations which has helped us greatly for our success this year.
