Volunteering is the biggest positive social phenomenon in Toronto, with 40% of adults giving back.

 

Once a year, during National Volunteer Week from April 7-13, Toronto recognizes the transformative contributions of our 1.6 million volunteers—the everyday citizens—who deliver critical services and landmark events that every Torontonian accesses and enjoys.

 

National Volunteer Week Celebration

 

On Tuesday, April 9, we invited all of this year's 110 Legacy Award nominees, as well as their friends and family, to #SayThanks with us at a special event. 

We celebrated all of Toronto's 1.6 million volunteers and recognized this year's six Legacy Award recipients—each an outstanding example of the volunteer spirit that powers our city.
