ORGANIZATIONAL RESOURCES
Volunteerism
The scope and value of volunteerism in Canada is impressive. It is estimated that one in three Canadians volunteer. The value of these contributions is well in excess of one billion hours a year - an estimated 500,000 full-time jobs. Saskatchewan has been recognized as the province with the highest per capita rate of volunteerism for several years in a row - higher than the national average. Our volunteers are the backbone of the cultural sector and help many non-profits accomplish some of the most innovative, not to mention cost-effective, community programming in the country. Visit our Volunteerism web page to learn more about the types of roles volunteers play, the benefits of volunteerism, as well as more resources and links.
