OPP selling Canine Unit calendars to benefit charities

ORILLIA – The OPP is selling a 2022 Canine Unit calendar benefitting two of its associated charities.

“In the sixth annual OPP Canine Unit calendar, canines from across Ontario show off their specialized skills and day-to-day commitment to community safety,” states a Nov. 8 press release from the OPP.

“Each month features a canine with a write-up identifying their specialty, their role and home location.”

All proceeds from the 2022 calendar go to the OPP Youth Foundation and the Friends of The OPP Museum.

“The charities thank everyone for their generosity as last year’s calendar sales raised more than $22,000 for these worthy causes,” police state.

“Each calendar costs $15 and can be purchased at the OPP Off Duty Shopp at oppshop.on.ca.”

For more than 50 years, the OPP Canine Unit has been providing assistance for search and rescue, tracking wanted persons, detecting narcotics, and searching for firearms, explosives and physical evidence, police say.
