Home Weatherization 


In 2016, United Way Centraide North East Ontario / Nord-est de l’Ontario (United Way) established an innovative partnership with Union Gas and EnviroCentre. The purpose of the partnership is to provide qualifying individuals with free home weatherization upgrades to reduce energy consumption. This objective is achieved through Union Gas’ Home Weatherization Program. Reduced gas and energy consumption offers many benefits - with upgrades, low-income families experience warmer, more efficient homes and save on bills. The partnership addresses energy poverty within communities and has a positive impact on the environment by reducing CO2 emissions.


As part of its anti-poverty efforts, United Way, with the help of Union Gas and EnviroCentre, is dedicated to improving lives by providing qualifying individuals with free home weatherization upgrades to reduce energy consumption.


• Provides free energy upgrades for income eligible Union Gas customers across United Way’s geographic district

o Insulation for basement, walls and attic
o Water-saving products
o Programmable thermostat
o Carbon monoxide detector


Benefits

For eligible individuals and families
• Savings – upgrades reduce heating and energy bills
• Comfort – upgrades make homes warmer and more efficient
• Emotional – savings alleviate stress and leave more money for other necessities such as food, shelter, clothing and more
• Safety – upgrades create safer, healthier homes

For the Community
• Positive Environmental Impact – less energy usage means a reduction in CO2 emissions, securing the environment now and for future generations
• Cost Effective – reducing energy consumption one home at a time supports the needs of growing communities and businesses
• Addresses Energy Poverty – helping low-income households save on heating and energy bills improves quality of life and strengthens communities

• Homes must be built before 1975

ASSA is also sponsored by the Greater Sudbury Police Services, Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations, Gezhtoojig Employment and Training, Rainbow District School Board and Sudbury Catholic District School Board.

It fosters encouragement, acknowledgement, dignity, integrity and pride in aboriginal youth. Youth are nominated under a number of categories including academics, community service, attendance excellence, artistic abilities, cultural recognition, extra-curricular involvement, most improved, best attitude, athletics, and leadership.


Canada Revenue Agency

corporatetaxThe Community Volunteer Income Tax (CVIT) Program is a program of United Way Centraide North East Ontario/ Nord-est de l'Ontario in partnership with the Canada Revenue Agency. It is supported by a number of volunteers who prepare income tax returns for qualifying families and individuals. The program is hosted at the United Way office as well as at offsite locations such as in public libraries and senior homes.

We would like to extend our most sincere thanks to the volunteers who help to make this program such a success! Without their commitment and hard work, thousands of individuals would not receive this vital service at no cost.

 

Would you like to volunteer for this program?

CVIT runs from the beginning of March until the end of April. (Exact dates may vary from year to year.)


The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program is closed for the year.

If you need your income tax done, please contact Tom at 705-566-6156.

The message on the answering machine will tell you where and when the next income tax clinic will be scheduled.Taxes will be completed on a first come first served basis only. No appointments.

 

Background

  • United Way has been involved in the CVIT Program since 1997
  • Over the last 9 years, an estimated 34,000 income tax returns have been filed which amounts to an estimated total value of 2 million dollars
  • Over 50 volunteers annually assist this program 
  • In 2015, 4030 returns were completed resulting in a value of $322,000 

Contact North

United Way Centraide North East Ontario/Nord-est de l'Ontario has recently developed a new partnership with Contact North. As a not-for-profit corporation, Contact North provides direct services and supports in English and French to students and prospective students in Ontario's 24 public colleges, 22 public universities and 250 literacy and basic skills and training providers. Using its services free of charge, United Way plans to develop online application and program training in order to fulfill its mandate to service communities within United Way's geographical catchment area.


President's Advisory Council

Michael Cullen, executive director of United Way Centraide North East Ontario/Nord-est de l'Ontario has recently been appointed to a one-year term for the President’s Advisory Council for United Way Centraide Canada. This council was created in 2005 as a means of bringing together key United Way staff leaders to advise United Way Canada on movement-wide issues and initiatives. 

Currently, Cullen sits on the United Ways of Ontario Council that represents 41 United Ways across the province of Ontario. His role is to represent the interests and issues that we face in Northern Ontario.


Labour Partnership

Unions are an important force for democracy, not just in the workplace, but beyond. Here in Canada, we have a strong social safety net in place to catch us when we need help, and that’s due in part to the strength of the labour movement. United Way and Labour have been partners for more than 30 years, since the inception of our local United Way in 1982. The partnership developed around a common interest: ensuring that workers and their families have access to social services in their community.

Many of the workplaces that run fundraising campaigns are unionized, but the partnership goes deeper than just financial support. Labour representatives volunteer with United Way as members of the United Way Board of Directors and participate in the decision-making process around policy and allocation of funds as well.

Our Labour Program offers many different community services including the Labour Community Advocate Training. This training helps workers find effective solutions and community support for issues outside the scope of their collective agreements. Labour Community Advocates are often the first contact for co-workers facing issues. Please contact our Director of Labour Community Services for more information.
