If you’re interested in joining our team, it’s important that you get to know us! At United Way, our mission is to meet urgent human needs and improve social conditions by mobilizing the community’s volunteer and financial resources in a common cause of caring. We believe that our greatest strength is our ability to bring people together, from all walks of life, to build a better region. This is supported by our well-earned reputation for trust, transparency and integrity.

A great place to work begins with its people. Our team of more than 200 talented professionals are dedicated to doing meaningful work in the community. We are driven by excellence and a shared set of values. Our employees are proud to work at United Way and are committed to building a region where every individual and neighbourhood can thrive.
