Support to Non-Profits

The United Way NWT is proud to be in a position to support non-profits of the NWT. As it stands, we…

  • Provide funding to NWT non-profits, charitable organizations through our Community Engagement process;
  • Promote activities and events of non-profits in our monthly E-newsletter;
  • Promote volunteer opportunities on our social media pages;
  • When available, provide training opportunities.

In this section, we would like to provide further information to those wanting to set-up a non-profit organization. To do so, we invite you to visit the Government of the NWT’s corporate registry website, specifically the incorporation tab

To apply to be registered as a charity, you must contact the Canadian Revenue Agency, their website is actually quite user friendly and easy to navigate.

If you would like any additional support, do not hesitate to contact our office and we will do our best to support you:
