About Goodwill Industries Of Alberta

Goodwill is One of the Largest Employers of Albertans with Disabilities

Goodwill Industries of Alberta is a local non-profit and social enterprise, strengthening communities and making a positive impact across Alberta.

Who We Are

We are a social enterprise on a mission

Goodwill is a social enterprise providing individuals with disabilities the opportunity to enhance their lives through meaningful employment.

We are a donor-driven charitable society

It all begins with a donation. The success of Goodwill’s retail operations and our capacity to strengthen the communities around us revolve around the generosity of people in those communities choosing to donate to Goodwill.

We are a
thrift retailer

Items donated to Goodwill are sold through Goodwill thrift retail stores, giving the community the opportunity to obtain quality items at a great value.

We are a Commercial Service operation

Our Commercial Services division offers centre-based employment providing a structured and accommodating work environment for individuals with mental health challenges. Commercial Services provides outsourcing and assembly services to businesses in Alberta.

We are passionate about the Power of Work

The Power of Work program provides employment coaching, job search, and training to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

We are a major recycler of a growing range of donated items

We recycle donated goods that our thrift shoppers choose not to buy into cleaning cloths and other reusable materials through our post-retail operations.

We believe our mission is who we are, our vision is what steers us and our values are what make it possible.
