SPEC has been re-connecting people with nature since 1969, which makes us one of Canada’s oldest environmental non-profits.
Every ticket purchase helps support our mission to motivate people—individually and collectively—to take action against climate change and to nurture their relationship with the earth.
We are deeply grateful to all of the local businesses who provided the raffle prizes. They share our passion for helping each other, the community, and the planet. If you haven’t yet visited their locations or tried their products, we encourage you to get acquainted.
