Every day, thousands of people voluntarily give their time and talent to thousands of organizations across Canada. They give their time freely and with no expectation of monetary reward. Their hours of service ensure that many activities are accomplished and many people are helped. … They represent every walk of life - professional, homemaker, student and retiree - as well as every age and cultural group.
Canadian Administrators of Volunteers - CAVR and Volunteer Canada provide national leadership in promoting and enhancing volunteerism in Canada. In January 2005, CAVR and Volunteer Canada embarked on a new project to consolidate CAVR's Standards of Practice (CAVR, 1998) with the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement (Volunteer Canada, 2012).
The result is a revised Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement that integrates elements of the original Code with the CAVR Standards of Practice. CAVR and Volunteer Canada are proud to present this revised edition of the Code to Administrators of Volunteers and the voluntary sector.
Audit Tool - This is the 2006 version. (The 2012 version has not yet been released)
