Village Spotlight

Terry Porter

Karen North is one of those quiet volunteers in the Canning area who gives of her time for so many organisations and needs.  She’s always there working tirelessly toward the goal, whatever it is. Some of her efforts include:

  • Valley Hospice Steering Committee
  • Valley Regional Hospital Foundation
  • Canning medical clinic advocate
  • Syrian refugee family sponsorship committee
  • Volunteered with Kosovo refugees
  • Canning Village community activities like the annual picnic (and she makes a mean soup for the Canning Christmas Tree Lighting Event!)
  • Youth Leadership committee
  • Fundraising for the Canning Fire Department/MultiComplex
  • Canning Recreation board treasurer


Karen and her husband, Blaine, offer their home for fundraising dinners and musical fundraising performances, and she regularly undertakes fundraising and volunteering with her church. Together, they provide one of their outbuildings at no charge to a community fitness group.

As a local advocate for anyone in need, Karen is always looking for ways to help others, including the migrant workers who help support our local economy with their work.  She’s a very valuable, cherished member of our community and worthy of a tip o’ the hat in our wonderful Village of Canning!
