Value of Volunteering in Canada

The Value of Volunteering in Canada is a research report briefing presented to Volunteer Canada on April 5, 2018, by The Conference Board of Canada.

"Each day, Canadians in every region of the country contribute both their time and money to help and improve the well-being of their communities. Financial contributions from millions of people across the country benefit important causes, including the successful operation of shelters, service organizations, and food banks. Also, contributions help to ensure that universities, research institutes, and hospitals can make key advances in scientific, medical, and other research areas. But in addition to donations, volunteering provides many important services that affect the lives of Canadians—supporting Canadians in need and contributing to sports, arts, cultural, and environmental causes are just some examples (Beckman & Antunes, 2018)."
