The United Way Movement
United Way is a worldwide not-for-profit movement. In Canada, there are over 100 local United Way offices, each registered as its own non-profit organization and governed by an independent volunteer-led Board of Directors. Each United Way works locally to raise funds and invest in improving lives in its community.
United Way has a long history in Canada, dating back almost a century. Over the years, we have been known by many names – among them Community Chest, United Appeal and Red Feather. Throughout, we are proud to have improved lives in over 100 local communities across the country.
