Kiwanis International was founded in Detroit, Michigan in 1915. The original motto “We Build”, later changed to “We serve the Children of the World” and remains our motto today.

Lakeshore Kiwanis golf TournamentThe Kiwanis Club of Lakeshore Montreal was founded on May 21, 1958, we are members of the Eastern Canada and Caribbean district with some 250 clubs, and a very large world wide network of close to 500,000 members strong!

Our focus is to put children first and to support service projects in the community, all in the spirit of altruistic camaraderie. In over 65 years through our Club and later with our Foundation, we have given not only millions of dollars but also millions of volunteer hours to benefit children and others in need.

“Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference.”  – Kathy Calvin.

When I say we, I mean you and everyone who has played a part in helping kids all these years. We extend a huge heartfelt thank you for allowing us to stand on your shoulders!
