Sport has the power to transcend borders and soccer (or Football) as the World’s Game, has the power to unite. Every four years the world comes together to cheer on teams during world cup season. In June 2015, Canada is the proud host of the largest women’s sporting event in the world, where fans will cheer across six cities in Canada – Moncton, Ottawa, Montreal, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Vancouver at the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015. Canada will not only be hosting but competing in this tournament.
UNICEF Canada has partnered with Canada Soccer to cheer on Team Canada and this partnership with Canada soccer continues through to the end of 2016. UNICEF Canada is also proud to have Karina Leblanc, goalkeeper for the Canadian Women’s National Team as our ambassador. High-fives are synonymous with sporting activities and moments of excitement. Throughout the summer months, UNICEF will be cheering on Team Canada, and asking Canadians from coast to coast to #highfiveit as they cheer on their favourite teams and to join the movement.Donate Now »

UNICEF Canada and Canada Soccer announced a multi-year partnership to support development initiatives that save the lives of children and mothers around the world.
Born to parents who sacrificed a lot to move from the small Caribbean island of Dominica to Canada, Karina felt lost and disconnected in her new home. It took sports – soccer – to help her find her way.
