If you’d like to share your expertise, network with others in the voluntary sector and enjoy a day of learning and professional growth, speaking at the 2nd annual VECTor Conference is the the perfect opportunity!

Volunteer Toronto is now accepting proposals to present at our 2016 conference on the theme Inspiring Action. From recruitment to retention and every step in between, volunteers need to be inspired, motivated and excited to make a difference in your organization. The Committee is seeking presenters who reflect the best contemporary thinking about volunteer engagement and management.

VECTor 2016: Inspiring Action, will take place on March 9th, 2016 at Oakham House, Ryerson University.

New Workbooks Available Online!

We are excited to announce the addition of two new Workbooks to our Resource Library! 


The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) is provincial law that is in place to ensure your organization is accessible for all clients, community members, staff and volunteers with disabilities. This workbook will cover the legally mandated requirements of the AODA for your clients as well as the best practices for ensuring volunteers with disabilities can effectively serve your mission and contribute to your volunteer program.

This workbook is available to subscribers of Volunteer Toronto.

The Professional Development resource guide & workbook has been compiled by Volunteer Toronto to help managers of volunteers in community groups, non-profits and charitable organizations with the tools to expand the volunteer management skillset and reach professional goals. This guide contains information about different professional development offerings and career transition opportunities for those in the volunteer management profession.

This workbook is available to everyone, and absolutely free!
