About Us

What's New?

Does making a difference and impact for youth and your community make you tick? Well, have we got the opportunity for you! The time has never been better to join Cheema's Board of Directors. We are posed for some awesome growth and development in the next couple of years and you know you want to be a part of it. I am attaching Board of Directors nomination forms. It's a simple process. Fill out the documents, ask two members to move and second your nomination and then send the form off to the Secretary of the Board of Directors - ed.wark@cheema.ca. In addition to the five Executive Committee Members, we are seeking to elect eight additional board members as Directors-at-Large. Your current Executive are committed to serve another year in their positions. COVID-19 took their plans for Cheema in an unexpected direction and many goals for the 2019-2020 fiscal year were pushed to the wayside. Let's just say we feel like there's unfinished business for us in our roles. However, we must submit nomination forms and put forth our names for election just like new, potential Board members. The membership will ultimately determine who they wish to have serve them for the next twelve months. I am available anytime to talk about the board, the committees we are looking to put in place and our plans for the future. Trust me, there are great things in our immediate future. Be part of the magic! Please do not hesitate to contact me at nadine.lamontagne@cheema.ca or by telephone at 902-240-1336 to get more information. I'm excited to chat. Thanks for considering! Nadine

It's the time of year for our annual Paddle-a-thon presented by McDonald's Mainland Halifax/Tantallon. This year due to COVID-19 there will be no pledge sheets or cash. Instead we've set up a GoFundMe page. Our goal is to raise $15,000 which we will use to renovate and install new washroom facilities. Please share on your social platforms. There will chances to win as well. #weareCheema #blackandgoldforever #LetsDoThis
