UNICEF is a non-profit humanitarian organization focusing on saving children’s lives around the globe. UNICEF is on a mission to reach every child and ensure their well-being, no matter where they are in this world. There’s no limit to the lengths UNICEF will go, the risks we’ll take or the depth of our commitment to save children’s lives. By plane, boat or foot, we reach the poorest, most vulnerable children in the world’s most inaccessible places, bringing them simple, life-saving essentials like vaccines and clean water. UNICEF Canada is one of UNICEF's 36 National Committees. UNICEF Canada’s main office is in Toronto, Ontario.
