Navan, Ontario, Canada
Our small but vigorous club has been serving the community of Navan, near Ottawa, since 1952.
This is where to find out about the services we can provide, including support to other community organisations.
Most of our activities involve fundraising and giving the money to individuals in need or to larger causes.
How do we do it, how much do we raise and where does it go?
More than 1.4 million Lions in over 200 countries are responding to local and global challenges with kindness and care.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Navan Lions’ third virtual wine tasting event. We partnered with local wine maker Jan Etter of Vignoble Clos du Vully Winery.
Proceeds from the event support the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides. The Foundation’s mission is to assist Canadians with a medical or physical disability by providing them with Dog Guides at no cost. The program, established in 1985, has grown to include seven different Dog Guide programs: Hearing, Seizure Response, Service, Autism Assistance, Diabetes Alert, Facility Support and Canine Vision.
THE HERB DEAVY BURSARY
The Navan Lions Club will once again offer students seeking financial support the opportunity to apply online for the Herb Deavy Bursary. The Navan Lions Club has presented bursaries to students since 1964. It is estimated that $35K has been awarded by the Club over the years! Recently, the Club began increasing the amount it awards annually. Up to $1,000 has been earmarked by the Club for 2024.
The Navan Lions Club will continue to accept applications from students who are already enrolled in a post-secondary program. However, new this year, the Club will now also begin making the application process open to students who have not yet begun their postsecondary education but are in the process of applying to a post-secondary institution. We hope students will consider applying for the bursary in 2024. The application form and all the necessary information is now available for viewing from the causes page on our website.
Applications will only be reviewed, however, after the 31st of May, which marks the end of the application process.
