What You Can Do

World Vision Canada anticipates raising over $384 million per year in total revenue for its community development, emergency relief and advocacy work, of which 14.2% will be used for necessary fund-raising.

In cases where donations exceed what is needed or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision Canada will redirect funds to similar activities to help needy people.

World Vision Canada is incorporated in Mississauga, Ontario.

For more information, or for a copy of our latest audited financial statements, please visit our website at worldvison.ca or contact Kathryn Goddard, Vice-President, and Donor Engagement at-1-800-844-7993.

If you give a donation to the Haiti Earthquake victims through World Vision by February 12th, it will double in impact due to a generous contribution from the Canadian Government.
