Established in 1931, in the time of the Great Depression, a Minister of the United Church started a second-hand store from the remainders of a rummage sale. His goals were a) to offer employment to those who could not find employment due to the Great Depression and b) to offer Manitoban citizens items which they needed at a low-price.
Since 1931, Canadian Goodwill has been incorporated and is now identified as a non-profit charitable organization.
The objectives of Canadian Goodwill are to provide vocational services, rehabilitation services, and employment for persons with physical, developmental, emotional or social disabilities, whose disability are obstacles to their employment in the open market.
By collecting, refurbishing and selling used articles, Canadian Goodwill help provide these Manitoban individuals with an income, independence and self esteem.
When you donate and purchase pre-loved items at Canadian Goodwill Industries you are supporting a registered non-profit charity. Money raised in our six Canadian Goodwill stores stays within our province, supporting fellow Manitobans.
Thanks to the wonderful donations we receive on a daily basis, and our loyal customers, Canadian Goodwill Industries has helped Manitobans for over 92 years.
When you give to Canadian Goodwill, you are giving to your own community.
Canadian Goodwill offers an atmosphere of dignity and respect for individuals who wish to attain independence and build self-confidence, through acquiring the necessary skills and life experiences.
Canadian Goodwill works to help rebuild the community in three ways.
Canadian Goodwill offers job placement to individuals with special needs by training them to be successful in areas such as appliance repair, upholstery, carpentry, and customer service.
The Canadian Goodwill employment programs help the environment by recycling. Items in gently used condition are priced and placed for sale in one of the Canadian Goodwill Stores.
Anything which is not repairable is recycled as much as possible. Parts are taken off non-working electronics to be used in repairing other electronics.
