How you can make a difference

Welcome to United Way Southern Vancouver Island – a collective of hard-working individuals who are passionate about giving, advocating, and volunteering to build a stronger, more resilient community.

United Way believes that at the heart of a healthy community are people who care for those around them.

There are many ways to get involved from running a workplace campaign, to learning more about partnership with Labour!

Engage your employees in supporting their community.

If your company is looking for a way to make a meaningful contribution to the community, and drive business results in the process, there’s never been a better time to get involved with workplace campaigns.

United Way & Labour – a partnership

United Way has a strong and long-standing partnership with organized labour. The National Partnership Agreement between United Way Centraide Canada and the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) was formed in 1988.
