National Volunteer Week is an opportunity to celebrate the vibrancy and impact of volunteerism in your community and across our country.

National Volunteer Week is April 7-13, 2019!

National Volunteer Week is when we can all take time to recognize volunteers and celebrate the power of volunteerism in our community.

Every April, Volunteer Canada leads us in celebrating National Volunteer Week (NVW). It is the perfect time to say thank-you to volunteers and celebrate the positive impact of volunteerism.
