Thank you for your interest and support in the work of Christian Aid Ministries, Canada. The Annual Open House has been developed and designed to bring information to our support-base all across Canada. The Friday Evening event is a series of presentations brought to you by CAM Associates in a more formal environment, and in a location that can accommodate over 550 people. The Saturday event is an opportunity for you to meet and greet fellow-supporters, tour CAM Canada headquarters and learn about practical components of the ministry and its operations in a more informal setting. The breakout sessions, afternoon presentation and the children’s story time will be presented in our large warehouse area in the Reapers of Hope wing of the complex. There will be plenty of room! Please feel free to bring your family and friends for an inspiring and informative weekend. If you have any questions relating to the schedule or available accommodations, please call our office at:
