A Better World was established in 1990 as part of the College Heights Seventh-day Adventist Church (on the campus of Burman University, formerly Canadian University College) in Lacombe, Alberta; it focused on a few small international projects. It has since grown to include people from all walks of life dedicated to improving lives without regard to ethnic, political, or religious association. The church then adopted A Better World as one of many humanitarian activities it governs.
In 2016, A Better World Canada received its own charity status from the CRA. Charitable receipts are issued by A Better World Canada CRA#800994006RR0001. The full legal name for trust and will purposes is:
“A Better World Helping Hands Canada”.
