New to Volunteering

New to Volunteering?

More than half of Canada’s non-profit and charitable organizations have no paid staff and rely solely on volunteers. 

With thousands of volunteer opportunities to choose from, it’s helpful to spend some time discovering what causes matter most to you and what skills and experiences you want to share or develop. 

Remember, meaningful volunteer involvement meets the needs of both the organization and its volunteers.
