Our History in Owen Sound, Ontario

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Owen Sound has been creating friendships since 1960 when a working committee of interested citizens met at the YMCA to found the organization. In 1964 the local organization was one of the founding members of Big Brothers of Canada.

The organization was incorporated in 1985 and complies with the Organizational and Service Delivery Standards of Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Canada. In 2016 the organization successfully completed the national Accreditation process and expanded to take on Big Sisters. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Owen Sound is completely financed by donations locally. The association has an office in the Harmony Centre, 890 Fourth Avenue East in Owen Sound. It employs a part time professional caseworker. A volunteer Board of Directors is responsible for the operation of the organization

We believe in the value and values of mentoring.”
