Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement & Code Audit Tool

By Volunteer Canada at 10:38 am Monday, Aug, 28 2017 • 0 Comments

Volunteer Canada created the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement (CCVI) in 2001 to support organizations that engage volunteers. The CCVI details standards of practice for engaging and managing volunteers effectively, and organizations are encouraged to adopt the standards at all levels. To assist in the adoption process, Volunteer Canada developed the Code Audit Tool, which allows organizations to assess and analyze the way they involve volunteers, and helps them identify areas for further development. Revised versions of the CCVI and Code Audit Tool have been published since 2001 to better reflect the everchanging landscape of volunteerism, and Volunteer Canada is now preparing to release a 2017 edition of both.
