A Better World Starts HERE.

It starts in our homes. In our schools and communities. In our country. It starts with you.

The National Capital Region Branch (UNAC-NCRB) is dedicated to promoting change locally that radiates out to the national and international levels. We work at educating, engaging, and participating in the goals set forth by the United Nations.

The United Nations is us: each and every person on this planet, and what we make of it.


The NCRB-UNAC passionately supports awareness and education around many causes near to heart of the United Nations. Through fundraising, hosting or promoting events, educational campaigns and sharing information the NCRB-UNAC seeks to spread awareness in Canada’s National Capital Region about issues of global concern. Some of the many issues the NCRB-UNAC support include climate change, food security, human rights, humanitarian aid and disaster relief, and poverty reduction. To learn more about these causes visit our issues page.
