A Journey Towards Authentic Engagement
Our community is strongest when everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Indigenous people continue to be over-represented in statistics related to homelessness, poverty, school readiness, and experiences of racism and discrimination. In order for our city to improve the quality of life for everyone, we need to ensure that community services are designed and delivered with our local people and priorities in mind. By authentically engaging the Indigenous community in decision-making, United Way can become more responsive and effective towards achieving better outcomes in the areas of housing, employment, early years education, and health services.

United Way endorses the Truth & Reconciliation of Canada’s Calls to Action and is committed to improving the quality of life for the most vulnerable people in Saskatoon. We will ensure we consider and incorporate the Calls to Action into our organizational structure, community impact strategies and strategic direction of our organization.
United Way will specifically focus on Calls to Action #57, #66 and #92.
