Why Volunteer?

Did you know that more than half of Canada’s 161,000 non-profit and charitable organizations have no paid staff and rely on volunteers? Over 13 million volunteers contribute 2.1 billion hours annually—Volunteering is a way of life in Canada and we are very proud of it.

At World Skills Employment Centre our volunteers contribute more than 3000 hours per year.

If you’re a newcomer who is looking for a way to learn more about the Canadian workplace culture, volunteering is a great way to do that.
