United Way of Northern British Columbia

United Way of Northern BC is governed by a volunteer Board, a diverse group of community leaders and key decision-makers who shape our strategic plan, ensure that donor support is used effectively, and monitor overall organizational performance. These individuals—and pillars of our communities—are passionate about the United Way of Northern BC and dedicated to our mission of improving lives and strengthening communities across the region.
