NEWS & EVENTS

A MESSAGE FROM UNITED WAY CALGARY PRESIDENT & CEO KAREN YOUNG

Helping lead the way in this unforeseen global pandemic to address its effects on Calgarians and beyond is once again the United Way. In 2014 Karen Young joined United Way of Calgary and Area as vice president and chief operating office. In 2016, United Way’s Board of Directors appointed Karen as president and chief executive officer. Karen came to United Way via The City of Calgary where she served for 26 years as an award-winning leader. Below is her message regarding the current COVID-19 challenge facing our city and the new COVID-19 Social Sector Information & Resources Hub.

CFN & WINDMILL

Paying for training, exams and licensing can be very expensive. Even immigrants who are fortunate enough to have savings can struggle to pay for what they need to complete their processes successfully.

Luckily, thanks to the support of the CFN hundreds of immigrants are being referred to Windmill Microlending, a registered charity offering up to $15,000 in low-interest microloans to help skilled immigrants and refugees achieve professional success in Canada.
