The United Way COVID-19 Relief Fund has been growing exponentially since the initial outreach in April. Thanks to the many individuals, corporate partners, government agencies and local fundraisers that contributed. 

We also want to acknowledge and thank the front-line essential service workers and volunteers for their extraordinary efforts during the pandemic.   

Government and National Foundation Gifts

Thanks to Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors program and Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) as well as other national organizations for the grants targetting vulnerable people in our communities.

“While physical distancing is essential to protecting seniors from COVID-19, it risks isolating them from their community. That is why the Government of Canada is proud to work with United Way Canada to help support the needs of seniors during this difficult time. By using local expertise, this funding will help provide support tailored to the unique, local needs of seniors across the country. As we work together to flatten the curve and slow the spread of the virus, the government is supporting Canadians every step of the way.”

– The Honorable Deb Schulte, Minister of Seniors – Government of Canada
