In Canada, United Way is a network of over 90 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 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 local communities.
Our Local Office
United Way of the Alberta Capital Region’s office is home to about 70 to 100 passionate employees, with a higher number of colleagues joining the team during our campaign season. We also have a few team members who spend the majority of their workdays just a few minutes away at our InKind Exchange building. Our people regularly meet together at “All Staff” meetings and team social events.
Diversity & Inclusion
United Way is committed to creating an inclusive workplace that reflects our diverse community that we serve. We encourage candidates from diverse backgrounds and those who may need accommodation to apply to join our team. By incorporating a variety of experiences and perspectives, we create opportunities for innovative solutions and maximize the impact of our work.
