We believe volunteerism and civic engagement are crucial for health and well-being. We need people with different cultures, backgrounds, and beliefs to create a vibrant community and transform our lives and the lives of others through active participation.
“(Being) Canadian is like being part of a big family. By having an enormous volunteer culture, we are bettering Canada one step at a time and making it one of the best places to call home!”
— Harry, Volunteer stories for a Canada 150 profile by ECVO
