Wawa has many services to assist our aging population, people with disabilities, or vulnerable persons living within our community.  Our many community volunteers help make up organizations willing to help at all times.

March of Dimes

Provides community supports services for older adults, and adults with disabilities and brain injuries with a goal of supporting individuals to remain independent in their own homes for as long as possible.

Please go to local March of Dimes, or to March of Dimes Canada for more information.

Meal on Wheels

Meals on Wheels services operate in virtually every community in Ontario, addressing isolation and hunger. Staff and volunteers from this network are the “eyes and ears” in the homes of your most at-risk members.  

Meals on Wheels is a program that delivers meals to individuals at home who are unable to purchase or prepare their own meals. The name is often used generically to refer to home-delivered meals programs.


Wawa is fortunate to be home of two wonderful pharmacies that provide prescriptions, medication, gifts, and much more.  Delivery is available upon request.

Fenlon's Pharmacy, located at 88 Broadway Avenue, and Wawa Pharmacy, located at 63 Broadway Avenue

Vulnerable Persons Registry


Vulnerable Persons Registry

The Vulnerable Persons Registry (VPR) is a free, voluntary and confidential service aimed at improving the safety of residents living at home who would be at greater risk during emergencies.

The VPR improves safety by providing key information to emergency response teams to help them be more aware when addressing large scale emergencies.

The VPR is active in some municipalities in the Algoma and Manitoulin-Sudbury Districts, as part of the Huron North Shore area.
