Thank you to our volunteers!
April 19, 2021
On Monday April 19, it was a pleasure to see over sixty volunteers come by the Harpell Center in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue to pick up their gift (salt lamps) generously donated by OM Wellness, in recognition of the light they bring into our clients’ lives. Sunshine and Karma were definitely with us ;-) We hope it will illuminate their lives because without their support we could not offer all of our compassionate care to the community. Our volunteers are very important to us so please stay safe and healthy until we see you again!

BEAU Christmas Market - What a success!
December 5, 2020
The BEAU Christmas Market held in support of NOVA West Island in Beaurepaire village on December 5th was a huge success and went above and beyond all expectations. As Dominique Godin, Beaconsfield city councillor, co-organizer and director on our board said: “The highlights of the day were people having a chance to see others outside by chance, seeing people walk home with locally made/crafted goodies from the village market, being able to put Nova on center stage, bringing a little Christmas joy to the neighbourhood…without mentioning that in terms of numbers, there were 600+ pies sold, 14 local vendors and over 30 volunteers on site."
A Cool Golf Event
October 08, 2020
Thank you to Bill Mitchell of Palos Wealth Management and Shep Abbey of Abbey & Olivier Real Estate Agency who sponsored a golf shootout event to raise more funds for us in these uncertain times. The success of our event went above and beyond our expectations with 60 golfers on site (with a waiting list) and a net gain of $14,600 (and counting) for NOVA! Speaking of numbers, the team handicaps varied from 5 to 14, the net scores ranged from 58 to 71 and the weather fluctuated from 4 to 10. A good time was had by all and virtually all participants said they hope to be invited next year. Thank you on behalf of NOVA West Island clients, families, staff, volunteers and Board of Directors! Keep on golfing and we will keep on caring!
