Your Connection to Canada’s Volunteering Community

Membership and Networks

We provide leadership to members and our broad network of insight, which includes partners across the voluntary, private and public sectors. Our members and network look to us as an advocate working to ensure that their views and concerns regarding community engagement are heard.

Our network of insight provides value on 21st-century volunteering. It connects members to every corner and facet of Canada and enables them to learn from others and share what they’ve learned and accomplished. Discover more about the advantages of membership—and about our members—below.
