About Salvation Army:
The Salvation Army is an international Christian organization that began its work in Canada in 1882 and has grown to become the largest non-governmental direct provider of social services in the country.
Most of The Salvation Army’s operations in Canada are established as unincorporated entities of the Governing Council of The Salvation Army in Canada. Other corporations controlled by the Governing Council include The Salvation Army Corporation of Bermuda. The Salvation Army combines its Canadian operations with its Bermuda operations, supporting vulnerable people in 400 communities across Canada and Bermuda. The Salvation Army offers practical assistance for children and families, often tending to the basic necessities of life, providing shelter for homeless people and rehabilitation for people who have lost control of their lives to an addiction.
Over 1.85 million people were helped by The Salvation Army in Canada and Bermuda last year. Its addictions, rehabilitation and shelter program provides 5,650 beds each night and served 3.2 million free meals last year. The Salvation Army employs over 8,000 employees in Canada including 23 Salvation Army officers and lay-personnel serving outside of Canada.
Financial summary is based on the consolidated financial statements of The Salvation Army Canada and Bermuda, including the operations of all 421 registered regional Salvation Army charities.
In F2015, the Salvation Army Canada spent 7% of revenues on administrative costs, and 11% of donations on fundraising costs. The Salvation Army Canada has funding reserves of $900m, including donor-endowed funds of $179m in F2015. Total funding reserves can cover annual grants and programs for 2 years or 1.8 years if excluding donor-endowed funds.
