About the Villa Colombo Toronto Auxiliary (VCTA)
Villa Colombo Services for Seniors opened its doors in 1976 and involved one of the largest cooperative community efforts in the history of Italian-Canadians.
In that year, the Villa Colombo Ladies’ Auxiliary, now the Villa Colombo Toronto Auxiliary (VCTA), was founded with a purpose of benevolent volunteerism in support of the home and its valued residents. The VCTA is comprised of committed individuals who dedicate their time and efforts towards creating special fundraising events and promoting our rich Italian heritage as part of Canada’s multicultural environment.
In the last 40 years, the VCTA has raised millions of dollars in support of Villa Colombo Toronto. As a service-focused non-profit organization, the VCLA membership is honoured and privileged to give back to our community.
The VCTA annual membership is $50.00. We invite you to join us and welcome your participation. For more information, call 416.789.2113 ext. 2260 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
