Our People


Based in Ottawa, USC Canada is a dedicated team of about 25 professionals working under the guidance of an international volunteer Board of Directors. We provide the managerial and financial oversight for our projects overseas and in Canada.

All of our work in 12 different program countries is managed and run by local staff, partners, community leaders and farmers. Their intimate knowledge of their own environments is vital to identifying and solving problems. This is both cost effective and ensures long-term viability.

We’re called USC Canada because we started out way back in 1945 as the Unitarian Service Committee, founded by the energetic Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova. We’re still planting the seeds that Lotta sowed. Find out more about our founder, Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova.



We would be happy to hear from you.
