Giving back to your community

Volunteering is a great way to meet people, embrace the local culture and integrate into the community.

Freely giving your time as a volunteer is something that people in the community will really appreciate. Plus, volunteering counts as local work experience, which could look good on your resumé.

Volunteer centres

Volunteer centres help create a culture of civic engagement. They are good places to get involved and find volunteering opportunities. Several municipalities have a volunteer centre, which offers services to their community (see the Useful links and documents section below).
