ADRA Canada's Warehouse in Edmonton

ADRA Canada has partnered with the Province of Alberta and the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo to open the Alberta Wildfire Donation Centre.

The Province of Alberta has entrusted ADRA Canada with the management of all non-cash donations for the Fort McMurray wildfire response.  We have hired new staff for the warehouse located in Edmonton. 

Volunteers are also needed to help with the donations processing.  Help us to meet the ongoing needs of those who have been affected by this disaster. If you would like more information or are interested in volunteering please click here.

World Refugee Day

ADRA Canada and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank Raise Awareness

On June 20th ADRA Canada joined our partner, the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, and other organizations at Nathan Philips Square in Toronto to raise awareness of the ongoing refugee crisis.

To further highlight the issue we posted stories of refugees on Facebook and Twitter.
