The Grand Parade has concluded for 2022, please look forward to it again in 2023! Check out our TGP 2022 photos in the Photo Gallery!
The Grand Parade is a family-friendly fundraiser walk held every September that helps support local charities who provide essential care and service for aging Canadians. The Near North Palliative Care Network has teamed up with The Grand Parade to ensure the aging population in our region receives the supports they need. Our event page, including our event photos, can be found HERE!
The Grand Parade is a moment to take to the streets across Canada to publicly honour aging friends and family, while fundraising for charities who serve them faithfully. The Near North Palliative Care Network has always attempted to serve the seniors in the area to help them age well. The funds raised in the Grand Parade will help the Near North Palliative Care Network to continue and grow the programs offered specifically for older people.
