Like all Canadians, we are heartbroken by the wildfire affecting thousands of residents in Fort McMurray and surrounding communities – and we want to do everything we can to help. From immediate crisis support to long-term rebuilding, United Way will be there on the long road to recovery.

You can help support the community’s recovery and rebuilding efforts by donating to United for Fort McMurray. 

Your support will be used to help address the community’s important social needs, like housing, food assistance, trauma and mental health supports, and the rebuilding of Fort McMurray’s social infrastructure. United Way will work with all levels of government and community partners to put your donation where it is needed most and will have the greatest impact – supporting both short-term recovery and long-term rebuilding efforts.

Together, we will make Fort McMurray great again. Please donate today.
