About Centraide Outaouais:

Founded in 1979, Centraide Outaouais (United Way of the Outaouais) aims to improve the lives of people in the Outaouais by collecting and distributing money to local charities. There are approximately 386,000 people in the Outaouais, an area that includes Gatineau and the surrounding communities. It is estimated that 14% of the Outaouais population is low-income, and the high school dropout rate is 24%.

Centraide Outaouais reports that it grants money to charities that improve living conditions, support youth, and work to build strong communities. People who are poor or dealing with a personal crisis can access food, shelter, social support, and help in finding a job. Children are encouraged to stay in school by preventing and addressing abuse. The charity reports that strong communities are created when local charities work with other community members and neglected neighbourhoods are no longer overlooked.
