2022 NWT Flood Response

In May 2022, Hay River and the Katlodeeche First Nation experienced unprecedented flooding, causing evacuations and damage to homes, infrastructure, and buildings. The United Way NWT, with support from the Union of Northern Workers and the Government of the Northwest Territories, has initiated a fundraising campaign to support those victims of the flooding and help them respond to the damage they’ve experienced.

You Can Help!

Please donate to this cause through our Canada Helps page.

The United Way NWT is incredibly grateful to the Union of Northern Workers – for providing a $60,000 donation to this fundraising initiative, and the Government of the Northwest Territories, who has matched your donations up to $150,000. Both these amounts are meant to provide immediate relief support to those who are working on the ground to support residents during this time, and in addition to formal government supports towards recovery efforts.

Through these spectacular partnerships, the United Way NWT is showing those impacted by flooding that they are not alone, and helping them get back on their feet.

Thank You

The United Way NWT’s campaign to support those affected by 2022 floods has been met with huge support from the community of the NWT.

The United Way NWT would like to thank:

YOU – all the NWT residents and beyond who donated through our CanadaHelps page to help raise more than $100,000, an amount that is continuously increasing
