In the spring of 1885, Dr. George Sterling Ryerson sewed two strips of red fabric onto a piece of white cotton and draped it over his horse-drawn wagons, transporting injured men. This later became the recognized symbol of The Canadian Red Cross Society.
The Canadian Red Cross Society was founded in 1896 and is one of the most active charity organizations in Canada. They offer an extensive network of programs and services that actively reach out and serve local communities.
These programs and services include Senior Programs like Support Services, Transportation, Hot and Frozen Meals on Wheels and Friendly Visits.
