Volunteer Toronto has been working with charities and non-profits in Toronto for more than 45 years. As the largest of Canada’s 200 local volunteer centres, we have developed expertise in the ways, means, and how’s of volunteer programming. Now we provide support in a variety of ways:


Training and Education


Volunteer Toronto’s training program has an outstanding reputation for providing workshops that help non-profits manage a range of issues around engaging volunteers. Common topics include:

  • Volunteer Managers Boot Camp
  • Volunteer Screening
  • Dealing with Difficult Volunteers/Setting Boundaries
  • Effective Volunteer Recruitment and Assignment

Workshop Fees: ½ day training $40 for Subscribers, $70 non-subscribers, full day training $65 VT Subscribers, $110 non-subscribers


Two Board training programs are also available, one targeted for members of “Governance” Boards and the other for individuals sitting on more operational or “hands-on” Boards.

On Demand Support


Every year more than a hundred organizations approach Volunteer Toronto to provide customized training or consultation to help them improve their volunteer programming.

Our staff or training volunteers are available to provide in-house workshops on more than 30 common issues including:

  • Integrating Volunteers and Paid Staff
  • Volunteer Position Planning
  • Succession Planning, Engaging Seniors
  • Diversity and Inclusion in your Volunteer Program

On-demand workshop fees: $120 per hour for Subscribers, $200 for non-subscribers. NOTE: pre-session planning with the organization is provided without a charge.

Volunteer Matching Tool

Volunteer Toronto manages an online matching tool that enables non-profits to list volunteer position openings which are in turn available to be browsed through, and applied for, by volunteer-seekers.  Every year we welcome more than 400,000 volunteer-seekers to the site and there are usually up to 700 positions posted there at any one time.


Available only to Volunteer Toronto Subscribers: Organization budget of less than $75K, cost is FREE, all other non-profits pay $130.00 per year.
