Oxfam Canada’s Face to Face Canvassing Across Canada
This page provides the most up-to-date locations and information regarding our current face-to-face canvas.
What is Face to Face canvassing?
Our Face to Face canvassers are currently visiting neighbourhoods in Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver.
If you are approached by someone in an Oxfam t-shirt or vest, talking animatedly about ending global poverty, you have likely met one of our face-to-face canvassers!
Face-to-face canvassing, whether it's door-to-door or on the street, is just one of the ways Oxfam engages people around ending global poverty.
Our canvassers have personal conversations about our programs and impact with the individuals that they meet, inviting them to support our work with a monthly gift.
Our face-to-face campaigns are carried out by a professional agency called Public Outreach. We teach their canvassers about our history, ideals and programs to make sure they are knowledgeable representatives of Oxfam Canada. We take pride in the knowledge, enthusiasm and quality of our fundraisers.
How do I know the fundraisers are legitimate?
Fundraisers for Oxfam will wear a prominently displayed name tag and have a good knowledge about Oxfam Canada programs. Fundraisers will wear a black or green vest identified with Oxfam Canada’s logo and will also carry materials about our work.
Our canvassers are committed to recruiting supporters who wish to support Oxfam through a monthly donation. However, while door-to-door canvassers can accept single donations, they are not allowed to accept cash.
Where are we now?
