Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement

Volunteer Cowichan has adopted the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement  and requires its member agencies to adopt the Code as a standards document for their volunteer management programs.

The Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement:

  1.  provides voluntary and not-for-profit organizations with a philosophical framework for involving volunteers at the governance, leadership and direct service levels.
  2. outlines the values, principles, and standards for effective volunteer practices within organizations.
  3. includes the Organization Standards Checklist, which will assist organizations in evaluating and improving its volunteer programs.
