Canada has long prided itself as a country of people who volunteer, serve and participate. However, this landscape is shifting and trends on volunteerism and participation have been declining, especially post-pandemic. As community needs and volunteer motivations change, we need to find new ways to reinvigorate community participation. Volunteer Canada is navigating the complexities of modern volunteerism. We are working to remove barriers to participation so that every individual feels empowered to contribute to building more connected communities.

Volunteering is so pervasive it’s invisible. We take for granted all the things that have been pioneered by concerned, active volunteers.

If you are creating a culture of giving through volunteerism, we are here to help. Whether it’s providing research and advice to non-profits or guiding the development and management of volunteering programs within organizations, Volunteer Canada is a trusted partner at every stage. We believe that people have the power to solve our most complex problems, and we’re here to help you engage them in meaningful ways.

Employees are looking for organizations that embrace the whole person, not just their skill sets. Companies that support important causes and encourage their employees to get involved are differentiating themselves in a highly competitive market and are attracting top talent. Volunteer Canada can help you create a customized volunteering program that resonates with your employees and supports your organization’s values.
