CITIZENSHIP - Striving for a better Canada.

IODE promotes good citizenship by encouraging an active interest and involvement in community life. Members attend Citizenship Court to welcome new Canadians, provide thousands of volunteer hours which contributes substantially to the well being of our communities as well as the economy. Awards are presented to out- standing citizens in recognition of their valued service and contributions to their community. Participation in Remembrance Day Services and by laying wreaths at the Cenotaph are a few of the ways IODE members honor our veterans and pay tribute to our Canadian troops.
Three members from the IODE Annie V Johnson Chapter stand at the cenotaph in North Preston which was initiated and erected under the direction of their chapter members. The cenotaph commemorates those from the community who served and sacrificed their lives for their country.
