Major floods in our country

As you probably know, major floods hit parts of the country last spring. In some cases, the water rose to levels that had not been seen for 100 years.

Vincentians from affected areas will soon be receiving numerous requests for help, from families reintegrating their home or moving to other locations.

The concerned conferences do not have the necessary funds to respond to the additional demand and so, to help them, I ask all council and conference presidents across the country to make a gesture of solidarity and send a donation to the National Council. Your help will allow us to financially support those conferences, who will then be better able to meet the needs of the people they serve. You can send your donations through our website at:

or via regular mail to:

Society of Saint Vincent de Paul
National Council of Canada
2463 Innes Road
Ottawa ON  K1B 3K3

Please specify that your donation is for the National Emergency Program.

Thank You for your support.

Jean-Noël Cormier
President, National Council
