20th Anniversary Video Series
Celebrating Canadian Charities

Every day charities touch our lives in ways we don’t often realize. They enrich our lives with art, culture, and fund lifesaving research. They are also there when Canadians need support through food banks, crisis lines, and more.

For 20 years, CanadaHelps has supported Canadian charities by building technology to increase giving in Canada. To celebrate our 20th anniversary, we are shining a spotlight on charities in Canada.

CanadaHelps’ 20th Anniversary Video Series

In honour of our 20th anniversary, we are proud to release a series of videos to celebrate Canadian charities. These charities share a connection to the environment—one of the most pressing issues of our time that impacts all of our lives and everything we do. It also touches so many things, as you’ll see in these films — animals, food security, land use, mental health, culture, and so much more. These charities are restoring Indigenous culture and language, conserving land and habitats, advocating for food security, rescuing animals, providing unique residential treatment of addictions, and more.

Watch these short, 3 to 5 minute videos to see how these charities make a difference every day.


Watch these charities in action and see how
they are making a difference every day.

Protecting Critical Habitats
On a mission to protect and preserve nature, The Nature Trust of British Columbia acquires and cares for British Columbia’s most critical habitats for vulnerable wildlife and plants. They have protected more than 178,000 acres.

Preserving Culture
A leader in preserving and sharing the culture and heritage of Nunavut, the Pitquhirnikkut Ilihautiniq/Kitikmeot Heritage Society is focused on the revival and preservation of Inuit culture, language, and history.

Conserving Marine Animals
Committed to research, education, and the conservation of marine animals and their habitats for generations to come, the GREMM is committed to protecting the whales of the Saint Lawrence River.

Rescuing Injured Wildlife
Connecting people to nature, Hope for Wildlife has rescued and rehabilitated more than 40,000 wild animals while giving Nova Scotians the knowledge to coexist with wildlife.

Sustainable Food Systems
FoodShare Toronto delivers healthy food and food education to schools and communities. Using a food system they have developed that is sustainable and accessible to all, FoodShare Toronto focuses their work on food justice by collaborating with those most affected by poverty and food insecurity.

Using Wilderness to Heal

Thank You to Our Sponsors


Rideau Hall Foundation



Our team at CanadaHelps is grateful to have the opportunity to meet and work on many Indigenous homelands across this land we share, Canada. As settlers on these lands, it is important to acknowledge that our Vancouver offices are located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish People, the Montreal offices are located on Kanien’kehà:ka (Mohawk) territory, and the land on which we operate in Toronto is the traditional territory of the Wendat, the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We want to express our respect for the territories we reside in and honour the diverse Indigenous People who have lived and worked on this land historically and presently. We, the staff and leadership at CanadaHelps, are committed to being active participants in reconciliation. We are committed to continuing to amplify Indigenous voices, and learning how our work affects Indigenous People.
