Today, there are over 100 United Ways Centraides across the country. Each one is an autonomous non-profit organization governed by a volunteer-led local Board of Directors. Each United Ways Centraide raises money and allocates funds locally to support its community.
The national office, United Way Centraide Canada, has a distinct role to provide leadership, guidance and support to local United Ways Centraides across the country. Together, local United Ways Centraides and United Way Centraide Canada form the United Way Centraide Movement. United Way is known as Centraide in Quebec, Ottawa and other French-Canadian communities.
With support provided by numerous volunteers and staff, United Ways Centraides create opportunities for a better for life for everyone in our communities.
