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.
New easy ways to search You can now use a calendar and geocoded maps to find volunteer opportunities in your neighbourhood at times that match your availability. Don’t know where to start? We have added a new Directory so you can browse a list of participating not-for-profits.
