Corporate Council on Volunteering

The Corporate Council on Volunteering works collaboratively to deliver strong leadership in the area of corporate citizenship in Canada. The Corporate Council on Volunteering was founded by Volunteer Canada, in partnership with The Home Depot Canada, in 2005. It brings together a diverse and talented group of business innovators from all sectors to lead dialogues and initiatives focused on corporate citizenship.

Supporting the volunteer efforts of employees

Through corporate community involvement, companies improve brand reputation, recruit and retain talented employees, increase social capital and invest in professional development—all while making a positive impact in the communities in which they work and live.

With a solid grasp of the non–profit perspective and a trusted history of developing corporate relationships, Volunteer Canada provides strategic counsel on how best to bridge the gap between the voluntary and corporate sectors.

Supporting sector-leading research

The Conference Board of Canada released the Canadian Corporate Community Investment Benchmarking Report, thanks in part to the support of Volunteer Canada's Corporate Council on Volunteering and other sector leaders. This report is based on the findings of their national survey of the community investment activities of 180 corporations in Canada, and marks the first time data has been compiled detailing Canadian corporations' investment in community.
