Please join us on April 15, 2023, at the Evario Event Centre for the Everyday Heroes Gala as we celebrate and recognize front-line workers who positively impact their community through exceptional acts of service.

At this Classy Country-themed event, you can expect a 3-course meal, an inspiration keynote from Dr. Dave Braun, The Oola Seeker, and entertainment from Mia Whitfield. Throughout the evening we will hear stories of our nominees and the night will conclude with an Awards Ceremony celebrating our front-line heroes.

These Everyday Heroes will be announced and acknowledged with a short awards program. Throughout this evening we will continue to raise awareness on the importance of mental health within the community of our front-line workers.

Our event is open to anyone in the community who wants to come celebrate and support our Everyday Heroes and raise awareness on the importance of mental health and resiliency.


Funds raised will go to further support the work of OSI-CAN and the Service Dog Acquisition Program through the BC & Alberta Guide Dogs. Their mission is to meet the growing demand for professionally trained Guide Dogs, Autism Service Dogs Dogs and OSI-PTSD Service Dogs for citizens of BC and Alberta.

OSI-PTSD Service Dogs provide a living, breathing lifeline to the outside world. While each bond is unique, the objective remains the same: to empower Veterans and First Responders with the tools to reclaim their place in the community and rebuild their lives.

The program matches recipients with an OSI-PTSD Service Dog that meets all of the Assistance Dogs International standards and together the Team embarks on a unique, 52-Week Healthy Community Living Program that helps transition the recipient back into their communities, providing them with renewed purpose, confidence and unconditional support.
