Charity Trust Fund

The Charity Trust Fund is assembled through the voluntary charitable donations of teachers who agree to contribute 1/2 of 1% of salary (approx. $37/month) through payroll deductions. The Local's Donations Committee distributes these funds to charities that have the greatest impact on the young people we work with. If you are not currently a donor, please consider signing up. The form and last year's distribution of the fund is available HERE.

Community Volunteer Grant 

Do you actively volunteer with a specific charity? If so, the Donations Committee, through a bequest, would like to donate to your charity on your behalf. Click HERE for more information and how to apply.  

Barnett House Renovations 

Due to construction, the lane at the west end of Barnett House (which connects the church property to the north sector of the Association’s property) will be closed.  To be clear, there will be no access to the parkade through the southern entrance by the church and there will be no access to the church from the parkade area. This closure will be in effect for most of the 12 month period. Staff and visitors travelling north on 142 Street will not have access to the Barnett House parkade; access will only be available to those travelling south on 142 Street. In addition, it will not be possible to turn north on to 142 Street from the Barnett House parkade area. This lane closure is required for safety, given the nature of the construction project ahead. PARKING AT BARNETT HOUSE IS LIMITED DUE TO THE PARKADE CONSTRUCTION.
