Govolunteer.ca not-for-profit nonprofit volunteering recruitment tool Canada British Columbia and Alberta

Welcome to the fresh, new Govolunteer.ca. You spoke, we listened. Over the last two years, we heard from YOU-- both prospective volunteers and not-for-profit organizations -- and have made your wish list into a reality. With thousands of users and data from over ten years, it has been quite the undertaking. The new Govolunteer.ca is a labour of love and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with you! Now, we haven’t just freshened up our look... we have added a ton of new features to make your experience connecting with volunteer opportunities and talented members of your community even easier and more interactive.

From our Vantage Point podcast - is a monthly podcast that shares expert perspectives and practical approaches to tackling common topics and concerns in not-for-profit governance and management.

We are often asked by boards that we work with: do we really need Director and Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance? We’ve finally had a chance to go to the experts for this one: Director and Officers Liability Insurance: A Necessary Cost? Kawkab Jamal, agency owner of The Co-operators office at 5564 Cambie Street, Vancouver, leads us through the key benefits of D&O insurance, the issues to consider when exploring or revisiting your coverage, and the risks of not having this type of insurance (because neither ignorance nor resignation is a defence!).

on Cates Bay Beach on Bowen Island (Xwlíl’xhwm) - Vantage Point and Reconciliation

Almost a year ago, staff and board at Vantage Point began to critically consider our organization’s Indigenous cultural competency. Our journey began with a (not so simple) question: why, when, and how would we acknowledge that our offices and training space are located on traditional Aboriginal territory? As we endeavoured to make space for this important conversation, we reached out to knowledge-keepers and more informed perspectives to provide guidance and support in the journey. Many talented people in our community responded from both within our own team and outside Vantage Point.
