We need your VOTE!

Banook Canoe Club is again competing for HRM capital funds from the Participatory Budgeting by District 5 Councillor Sam Austin. Participatory budgeting allows residents to have a direct say in how money is spent.

Last year, we were successful in receiving community support that allowed us to upgrade lightning through out the club and make exterior siding repairs.

This year we require support to replace the gym exit fire escape stairwell and upgrade our office and storage spaces.

When: Tuesday, November 6th, 2018
Time: 6:00pm-8:00pm
Where: Findlay Community Centre Gym
Who: All ages in District 5 can vote!
