The Canadian Volvo
Club is a non-profit automobile club which encourages enthusiasm
for Volvos. The CVC is dedicated to the promotion of safe, fun events
and activities for all its members and the Volvo community.
The CVC evolved in
the late 1970’s when two London, Ontario area residents, Rick
Guy and Fred Sleight, began receiving newsletters produced by another
Volvo enthusiast for Volvo owners. In 1980 Rick and Fred decided
to hold a Volvo meet; which attracted a dozen or so Volvos. The
meet was such a success that it became an annual event. Today, the
Day" attracts hundreds of people and over 150 Volvos from
the 1960’s to new models. The club now has approx. 100 members,
all of which receive a quarterly newsletter. Members can be found
in every Province of Canada, The United States and in other countries
around in the world.
2005, the Canadian Volvo Club finalized the process of becoming
incorporated. The club (which will continue with the name of Canadian
Volvo Club) will now be governed under the mandate of Canadian Swedish
Iron Inc., a registered not-for-profit organization. Under the incorporation,
