Give to change lives


Public servants care about their communities and the people who live in them, and they have built a tradition of giving through the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign (GCWCC).

Every act of giving counts. You can make a difference through financial gifts or volunteering your time. Whichever way you choose to give, you are helping to change lives and deliver results that matter.

In response to the devastating storms of September 21 in the National Capital Region, employees can now also give to two funds dedicated to support the short and long term needs of those affected. United Way Ottawa and Centraide Outaouais have come together with organizations within the region to provide housing, counselling, food and household goods to those impacted by the storms through the "After the Storm" fund for Ottawa and the "SOS Tornado Fund" for Gatineau.

Together, small steps make a big difference for our families, friends, colleagues and neighbours in need. As our national slogan says: "It’s what we do — improve the lives of Canadians."

Use the dropdown menu below and follow the instructions to designate your donation to the storm relief funds.
