Our Impact 2018-09-13T19:39:34+00:00

Our region is a great place to live. But growing gaps between rich and poor are creating a divide within our communities. And access to opportunity is increasingly out of reach for too many. With your support, we are bridging these growing divides to create the opportunity of a better life for everyone in our communities.

The Challenge

Our Work

Community Impact Strategy

United Way believes in working with local agencies and experts in order to make lasting change in our communities. It was through this process of consultation and collaboration that United Way CSO created its Community Impact Strategy, a framework which will direct our local investments, collaborations and community building initiatives for the next 3-5 years.

In keeping with United Way-Centraide Canada’s national brand framework, our United Way has endorsed 3 strategic focus areas.

We have further defined 9 local priorities based on research and community consultation. 

For further detail on how these priorities guide our investments, you can read the whole report here.
