Corporate Community Engagement Council


Corporate Community Engagement Council

Corporate Community Engagement Council LogoCompanies have a unique opportunity to create informed, engaged global citizens through offering employees and other corporate stakeholders opportunities to better understand community issues and support for participation in voluntary activities that can bring positive change.

Volunteer Canada’s Corporate Community Engagement Council (CCEC) is comprised of Canadian companies committed to advancing the practice of corporate volunteering, giving, learning and other civic activities in order to create stronger communities, growth for employees, and a skilled empathetic workforce for companies. 

Going beyond volunteering to look at corporate community engagement more broadly, this leadership group brings together a diverse and talented group of practitioners from Council companies to:

  • Learn together in a supportive peer environment 
  • Benefit from Volunteer Canada's experience and consultation services
  • Generate and promote thought-leadership on corporate community engagement practices 
  • Support Volunteer Canada’s mission (see CCEC Member Company Pledge)
