What It Is..
Kin Canada, Canada’s largest all-Canadian service organization, made up of Canadian men and women gathered together in clubs for the purposes of bettering their communities by performing ‘hands-on’ service work, raising funds for important community projects and having fun.
More than 7,600 members belong to 570 Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin clubs from coast to coast. Kinsmen clubs are made up of Kinsmen while Kinette clubs are made up of Kinettes. Kin clubs have a mixed membership of Kinsmen and Kinettes. Our association was founded on Feb 20, 1920 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and there are no clubs outside of Canada. There are a number of Kin Kids clubs for children in various areas of the country.
Chartered in 1945, the Kinsmen Club of Stratford is one of the most recognised service clubs in the city and at one time had over 75 active members. Current membership is at 14 members.
