Last year, we successfully navigated a crisis.
The choices we made ensured the vibrancy of our Jewish future. 

We protected our community during the pandemic resulting in all our agencies being able to weather the storm.

Federation ensured:

Federation has identified two main areas of priority to secure our recovery and strengthen our community for the future.


1) Supporting the Most Vulnerable

Many people still need extra help. From food insecurity to mental health struggles, Federation is here to strengthen our Jewish social safety net. 


2) Ensuring Access to Jewish Life and Education
Many families remain financially fragile and at risk of disconnecting from Jewish life. Federation is working to ensure that everyone still has access to the Jewish Superhighway with the ability to enjoy meaningful Jewish journeys.

All of this, in a secure environment

On top of the pandemic, Jewish communities across Canada have seen a disturbing rise in antisemitism. Federation will continue to work with our advocacy partner, the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, as we mobilize to counter antisemitism, particularly to ensure public school students and our university campuses have safe environments for our children.


Here for Good

Your gift to Federation's 2022 Annual Campaign will fuel our recovery and bring this vision to life.

Thank you for helping us meet these priorities and to fuel our community’s ongoing recovery. Now is not the time to relent – please join us in being HERE FOR GOOD and help see our recovery through.
