Kin Canada is an all-Canadian service organization made up of dedicated member volunteers who serve their community’s greatest needs through  hosting and sponsoring events and community service projects.
Since its founding, Kin, Kinsmen and Kinette clubs across Canada have contributed more than $1 billion to Canadian communities and disaster relief programs beyond our borders.

The Kinsmen Club of Corner Brook was chartered in April of 1953, since then we have donated over 3 million dollars back to our community.

Some of our accomplishments include:
  • Kinsmen Eastside Park where our Corner Brook Kin Centre is Located
  • Kinsmen II Arena - Construction of the original Kinsmen Arena took place in the 1970s- Following the construction of the 1999 Canada Winter Games Arenas (Corner Brook Civic Center)  a second ice surface was added and named the Kinsmen Arena II.
  • Prince Edward Campground and RV Park has been operated by our Club for more than 20 years.
  • The Participark which is now part of the Corner Brook Stream Trail
  • Kinsmen Skateboard Park
  • In August 2001, our Club Hosted the Kin National Convention with our 500 attendees
