Volunteer Canada

Volunteer Canada is the national voice for volunteerism in Canada. Since 1977, Volunteer Canada has been committed to supporting volunteerism and civic participation through ongoing programs and special projects.

National in scope, Volunteer Canada's board members, partners and members represent hundreds of different communities across Canada. Our membership includes over 86 volunteer centres established throughout the country in all provinces and the Yukon Territory. We also work in close collaboration with the federation of over 110 volunteer centres in Quebec. Managers and directors of volunteers represent a vital aspect of volunteerism in Canada and make up an important aspect of our organization's community.

By developing resources and national initiatives, we actively engage in research, training and other national initiatives designed to increase community participation across the country. Volunteer Canada provides leadership on issues and trends in the Canadian volunteer movement.
