Welcome Message from State Deputy, Marcel Lemmen
The Knights of Columbus established a presence in Ontario over 120 years ago, shortly after its founding. Since then, we have been doing charitable works for our Church and community while also attending to our member’s spiritual, social and financial needs. We have over 560 councils across the province and over 55,000 members from a wide diversity of ethnic backgrounds.
As you can see from this website, our many programs span a wide range of activities. Councils and their members choose the programs that fit their interests and the needs of their community.
I’ve been a proud member since 1997. I joined the Knights of Columbus in order to volunteer some of my free time and to repay a debt of gratitude for the many blessings I had received up to that point. During my years of involvement, I have found that the continued blessings, because of what I’ve done as a Knight, have far outweighed my attempts to repay them, and I’m very happy about that. I also appreciate the life-long friendships that I have made with men who share my faith and desire to help others.
If you are not a member, I invite you to take a look around this website, find out what we do and consider joining us. It will be the experience of a lifetime!

was apparent to the priests and Bishops at that time
that along side the growth of churches in smaller
rural areas, a new faith based social organization
was growing south of the border. READ MORE
