The government of Canada is providing C$40 million over three years in support of Pakistan’s polio eradication program. The funds will help the World Health Organization and UNICEF interrupt transmission of the wild poliovirus in Pakistan. Canada is the fifth-highest per capita donor to polio eradication, with over C$500 million committed to date. It coordinates its efforts closely with Rotary, matching Rotarians’ contributions during fundraising campaigns.
THE ROTARY CLUB OF NORTH BAY
Helping to make a difference in our community, country and around the world since 1923.
Welcome to our website where you will be able to learn more about our club and Rotary. Our membership represents a cross-section of the community - young and not so young, male and female; and includes a great range of vocations. Rotary is the world's oldest service club organization.
Our club has adopted a primary focus towards helping children and youth overcome adversity. Largely through the fundraising efforts of Rotary4Kids, Rotary-at-home TV Bingo, Nevada Tickets and Rotary Rose Day, in excess of $175,000 is generated each year to meet this primary focus, as well as our direct/indirect involvement and support of Rotary projects and initiatives with other clubs, our district, and Rotary International at home and around the world.
Please consider coming out to one of our Monday noon meetings at Cecil's - The Grande Event Centre to meet us.
