Volunteering For New Canadians

This guide from Volunteer Canada encourages new Canadians to embrace the many volunteer opportunities available to them in their communities.

Volunteering can provide you with the opportunity to help others. It may also help you find a job in Canada.

Volunteering is a way for you to learn new skills, continue to develop your existing skills, practice English and meet people. It allows you to build networks, gain Canadian experience, and learn more about the work environment in your community. When you volunteer you do work without pay for the benefit of both others and yourself.

This resource covers topics such as:

  • Why volunteer?
  • Examples of volunteer opportunities
  • Frequently Asked Questions about volunteering
  • How to find a volunteer opportunity
  • Learning more about volunteering
