United Way BC is dedicated to fostering understanding, respect, and an acknowledgment of the rich histories of the lands and waterways we traverse. The organization’s mission guides across vast and diverse territories, each with its unique tapestry of languages, governance systems, traditions, and cultural heritage. The relationship with these lands and waterways has been stewarded by Indigenous communities since time immemorial, long before the establishment of contemporary boundaries, and United Way BC humbly recognize that many of these territories remain unceded.
