The Kiwanis Club of Barrie was started in 1922 and is the longest serving Service Club in Simcoe County. On August 15, 2012 we celebrated 90 years of service to the Greater Barrie Area.
Membership includes men and women who wish to make the community a better place by providing their volunteer efforts.
Supporting the community requires volunteers. "WE NEED YOU."

Ukrainian Flight to Freedom Fund
The Kiwanis Club of Barrie, with the approval of the Kiwanis Foundation of Canada, has created a fund to support Ukraine Families coming to Canada. This Fund will allow Clubs that are flying families from Ukraine into Eastern Canada to request matching support to assist with their cost.
The Kiwanis Foundation of Canada have agreed to hold funds in the "Flight To Freedom Fund". This allows Individuals and Clubs who are not involved directly with a Ukraine Family to contribute their financial support to Clubs that are directly involved.
