through the Community Services Recovery Fund

United Way of the Alberta Capital Region is proud to have worked with United Way Centraide Canada as part of the Government of Canada’s Community Services Recovery Fund. This fund is being administered collaboratively by the Canadian Red Cross, Community Foundations of Canada, and United Way Centraide Canada to provide funding to Community Service Organizations, including non-profit organizations, Indigenous Governing Bodies, and Registered Charities located in Canada. The Community Services Recovery Fund responds to what Community Service Organizations need right now and supports organizations as they adapt to the long-term impacts of the pandemic.


The Community Services Recovery Fund is a one-time investment of $400 million by the Government of Canada to help Community Service Organizations (charities, non-profits, Indigenous governing bodies) adapt, modernize, and be better equipped to improve the efficacy, accessibility, and sustainability of the community services that they are providing through the pandemic recovery and beyond.

As community service organizations across Canada work to support recovery in their communities, the Community Services Recovery Fund will help them adapt and modernize their operations to grow their impact.
