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:

Currently, we are a club of 19 members, with a strong K-40 club.

Donations to the Western Memorial Regional Hospital Foundation now stand at - $59,247.37
