        The CTC and Charitable Organizations

        Please note that the CTC is a revenue neutral gaming convention. The two charities which the CTC has partnered with are Wounded Warriors Canada and the CHEO Foundation for children.

        • The CTC which will be making a large donation of all General Admission tickets sold to the WWC soldier fund. Please support the WWC fund by bringing a small donation for them at their booth. The founder of the CTC is a 17 year veteran of the Canadian Army and knows first hand how important it is to support our soldiers who are left vulnerable once release due to major physical disabilities. 
        • The CTC will also make a matched donation up to $1,000 to the CHEO Foundation to help families with sick children who need help. The goal for the integration of CHEO at the CTC is to create absolutely crazy fun terrain to showcase hand made, colourful, themed tables made entirely of LEGO! These tables will be used in the conventions for fun events and donations jars will be available at each table for the community to make donations.
