Canadians Building a Dream Home in Mexico: Casa De La Paz (Moving To Mexico)

Prepare to be moved as we shine a light on this remarkable story of Mexicans and Canadians standing together, weaving a tale of hope, compassion, and the triumph of the human spirit in the developing community of Bucerias, Nayarit, Mexico.

Bucerias Tercera Edad, translated meaning "The Third Stage" is a volunteer non profit association registered in Mexico in the spring of 2014.

Marilyn Moxin (President) and her husband Jim started out as part of Amigos de Bucerias helping needy members of Club de Tercera Edad (the Bucerias senior center) on Canal and Encino. Another person came along offering help to this seniors' club so Marilyn and her group decided to branch out with the intention of helping all needy seniors in Bucerias. This non profit group is not associated with Club Tercera de Edad, the Bucerias senior community centre, although we do provide assistance to some of their needy members.

Plans and dreams escalated. The association is now raising funds to build an assisted living home for seniors of Bucerias, Punta de Mita, LaCruz and Valle. The first phase will provide 16 double occupancy rooms with a possibility of adding a second story to the structure if warranted in the future. Fundraising efforts include corporate and personal donations, various markets, monthly dinners, raffles and other fun activities.

Our plans are aggressive and we need your support. Please contact us to donate to this very worthy cause!
