The Events for Life Centre (EFL) is located at the Beaver Creek Farm in the Town of the Blue Mountains, just outside of Thornbury Ontario. EFL provides day programs for individuals with special needs from Thornbury, Meaford, Collingwood and the surrounding areas. Operating Monday through Thursdays, EFL provides social, recreational, and healthy living skills for over 30 participants both in person and on-line. Our goal is to support these individuals so they can live, learn, and work in an integrated, inclusive community.

Bike Canada Event for Life


Do you have an “event for life”? A trip that was planned for spring 2020 is now coming to life!! They are set, ready and loaded to experience their Event for Life!!! Melanie Johns has been a volunteer and Board member at Events for Life since it all started in 2013. Her friend (Nicki) and her husband (Tim) are finally setting out on their bikes to ride across Canada! They fly out west mid-May and will start their journey from Mile Zero in Victoria. While they ride, they will be asking people “what is your event for life?” They will be telling people about the Events for Life program in Thornbury and bringing awareness to the need for programs for individuals with special needs. Along their journey across Canada they will be raising money for Events for Life. Their goal is to raise at least $1 for every kilometer that they pedal. That is approximately 8000 km. Melanie, Nicki and Tim will be back in Ontario in July for a rest and then hitting the road to finish their trip along the East Coast. The play to finish in August.
