Volunteer BC has several program areas, which we constantly expand and look for opportunities to support volunteerism in the province. These programs are for anyone interested in volunteerism or learning more about the voluntary sector.

Volunteer Engagement and Participation Programs

A time to celebrate and thank BC’s volunteers. Our annual photo contest showcases volunteers and helps tell the story of the importance of volunteers in BC.

We’ve developed a series of handbooks called Community Connections found in our Resources Section. They include information on the rights and responsibilities of a volunteer, latest tools/resources on volunteer engagement, skills needed to be a great volunteer, and health benefits of volunteering.

Annual 2-day event with inspiring keynote addresses, practical workshops and opportunities to network. Anyone interested in learning about volunteerism is welcome to attend. Learn more on our Conference Page.

We deliver training province-wide and help rural and isolated communities access training on volunteer engagement. Do you have a workshop or training idea you’d like the rest of the province to know about? Contact us!

Originally developed by Community Volunteer Connections, the CWVP program benefits new immigrants by finding ways to be engaged in their community, learn new skills, gain “Canadian” experience and help improve the quality of life in their community more effectively.

Volunteer BC researches, builds the calendar and promotes educational opportunities related to volunteering. View the Training Calendar or submit a Training Opportunity.
