It's been a year in the planning and has taken the combined efforts of dozens of people and organizations, but the event of the New Year is now upon us! On Thursday February 11, 2010, Ducky's will crown it's second Duckys Idol and the very talented individual will walk away with thousands of dollars in prizes!

The concept of this event began in the summer of 2008 and after the massive success of the first competition and demands of hundreds of local performers,  the time had come to move forward with Round II of this exciting promotion.

Along with almost $10,000 in prizes, Duckys Idol has collaborated with the Canadian Down Syndrome Society.  All proceeds including contestant entry fee's will be donated to this worthy charity.  During this difficult economic period, the management and staff of Duckys are optimistic that this promotion will help to raise thousands of dollars for those families affected with Down Syndrome.

Let the Games begin!!


The Canadian Down Syndrome Society continues to work on behalf of the 35,000 Canadians with Down syndrome and their families.  As we begin planning for our next exciting event “Ducky’s Idol”, we would love to include your Organization as a proud partner. 

The CDSS is dedicated to making sure the voices of citizens with Down syndrome are heard across this country in schools, work places, government offices and communities.  The Canadian Down Syndrome Society works to ensure equitable opportunities for all Canadians with Down syndrome by fostering a climate of understanding and mutual respect for the dignity, worth and equal rights for ALL people.  Please help us continue this important work.  The inclusion of citizens with Down syndrome in society will help create a Canada where ALL are welcome, we celebrate diversity and we value everyone’s genes equally.  Thank you for your support; without you this could not be possible.

2009 Duckys Idol - Shane Scott

It was an exciting and tense competition last year, with many surprises and amazing performances.  At the end of it all however, we were pleased to crown our first Duckys Idol, none other then the enigmatic Shane Scott! Known to his fans as Suzie, he edged out the tight competition in a 3 way head to head showcase with his signature Journey tune. Since the crowning, he has been busy travelling, but he will be making a command appearance during this years finals!
