About Us

Founded in 1940 as the Edmonton Council of Social Agencies, the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton was incorporated on June 7, 1973 and is one of Edmonton's longest serving non-profit organizations.

Each year all of Edmonton comes together to ensure that the least fortunate in our community receive a festive food hamper. Through individual and corporate donations, we are able to provide for more than 62,000 Edmontonians in need.

The tradition of sharing continues. Non-denominational and accessible to all, the Christmas Bureau works closely with a number of other organizations to ensure that the money we raise is used effectively without duplication of service. While the process of determining a person's eligibility is a thorough one, it is marked by a spirit of compassion and generosity, respecting his or her dignity, integrity, confidentiality and rights. The Bureau is a registered non-profit society governed by a board of directors and administered by a small staff employed for a portion of the year.
