Since 1984, Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind has been training guide dogs for blind and visually impaired Canadians. This involves breeding, raising and training guide dogs, as well as providing transportation and accommodations for our clients from acrossCanada, who live at the training center for approximately one month to train and become familiar with their new guide dog. All of these services are provided at no cost to the client; and as we are not affiliated or funded by the CNIB or the Government of Canada, we rely completely on fundraising initiatives and donations from the public.

Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation, founded in 1970, is a registered local environmental charity working to protect theRideauRiverand its tributaries right here inEastern Ontario. Specialties include tree planting, water quality protection, outdoor education for youngsters and acceptance of land donations for future conservation areas in the watershed.

Each rain barrel comes fully equipped with a leaf and mosquito filter basket, an overflow adaptor that permits multiple barrels to be connected in series, 1.2m of overflow hose and a spigot that attaches directly to a garden hose. The price is $55 per barrel. (Additional overflow hose can also be purchased if required.)
