National Partners: Canadian Jewish Federations & Community Councils

The Canadian Jewish Federations are part of a larger international system that embodies our global Jewish responsibility based on the principles of “Tikkun Olam” (repairing the world). In Canada there are 10 Federated Jewish communities and 4 regional councils. 


Each federation assumes responsibility for local community planning, financial resource development and allocations which support a network of social service agencies, schools and community centres. The Federations also fund similar networks in Israel, the former Soviet Union and other parts of the world as needed.


Canadian Federations operate according to the uniqueness of each community, All, however, accept and participate in the “National Collective Responsibility” (NCR), a system that supports a range of programs that strengthen our Canadian Jewish communities and brings Canadian Jewry across the country to stand together in times of challenges and crises.


Below is a complete list of federations and community councils.
