Welcome to the Ark Aid Street Mission ... offering a hand UP not a handout. x

Who We Are

The Ark Aid Street Mission was founded in 1984. Since then it has grown in its mandate to serve people who live on the margins of society. The Ark, as it is popularly known, is a charity registered with the Canada Revenue Agency, supported by a wide variety of local people, churches and businesses. The motivating factor of the Board, staff, volunteers and donors is to practically express Christian faith and love where they are needed most.
