The best way to find assistance close to you is through 211, a platform that can connect you with a full range of non-emergency social, health and government services in your community. To access 211, simply dial “2-1-1” on your telephone or visit www.211.ca.

If 211 service is not available in your area, your local United Way can also help connect you with programs and resources in your community.

United Way Centraide is a federated network of 77 local United Way offices, each registered as its own non-profit organization and governed by an independent volunteer-led local Board of Directors. Each United Way works locally to raise funds and invest in improving lives in its community.

United Way Centraide Canada is the national office and has a distinct role to provide leadership, guidance and support to local United Ways across the country. Together, local United Ways and United Way Centraide Canada form the United Way Movement.

No one should feel forced to give to United Way. Giving is a personal choice that should always be made voluntarily. If you have felt pressured to donate to a United Way campaign, we encourage you to raise those concerns directly with your local United Way.

United Way is non-partisan and non-religious. While some of the organizations we fund have religious origins, like the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA), the services and programs offered by these organizations are open to all individuals regardless of religious affiliation.

United Way relies on the generous contributions of community members every year to keep our costs as low as possible. If you would like to make an in-kind donation, or offer pro-bono services, please contact your local United Way to determine what is needed in your community.

Each local United Way makes independent funding decisions based on the needs and priorities in its community. To find out more about the process for obtaining funding in your community, please contact your local United Way.

On average across the country, 85 cents of every dollar raised by United Way goes directly back to the community. This is well above industry standards, and competitive with the top non-profit organization across Canada. In turn, United Way is helping thousands of other non-profits keep their costs low too.

Executive salaries at United Way Centraide Canada and United Ways across Canada are established through a comparison of executive compensation at other charities, an assessment of roles and responsibilities, and a commitment to spending dollars wisely.

The Canada Revenue Agency requires charities to provide the salary ranges of their most highly paid employees and publishes this information annually here.
