President & CEO

We’re lucky to live in a region where many of us are able to live a good life. Some of our friends and neighbours, however, aren’t so fortunate.

When you give to United Way, you are helping people in your own communities, where you live, work, learn and play. When you give locally, you see local results.

We have been helping people for over 80 years. Through our community investments and ongoing work across the region, we strive to make this a place where everyone can access opportunity and reach their full potential, no matter where they live or where they’re from.

When we help one another, everyone benefits. Children thrive. Individuals and families feel supported and empowered. Seniors feel connected and continue to enrich our lives.

We focus our work in three main areas: building strong communities, helping kids be all they can be, and moving people from poverty to possibility.

At United Way, we inspire breakthroughs. We help create opportunities. When we help one another, the possibilities for the future are endless.

Thank you for your interest and your support.
