Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign 2020 National Launch Event

Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign 2020


The Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign (GCWCC) is the largest charitable workplace campaign in Canada. Last year, federal public servants and retirees raised over $30 million for HealthPartners, United Way Centraide Canada and thousands of registered charities across Canada.

In these difficult times, millions of Canadians are feeling the impacts of COVID-19 in all aspects of their lives. Now more than ever, the GCWCC remains vital to supporting our communities across the country.

Join us as we kick off this year's campaign with a special virtual launch event. Through this live webcast, participants can learn how the GCWCC is adapting to a virtual campaign, how public servants have worked to support Canadians during COVID-19 and how they can continue to make an impact in their communities through the GCWCC. 

Join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #GCWCC2020
