More than 1.6 million volunteers give time to non-profits and grassroots groups every year in Toronto. Tens of thousands more have mobilized in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to protect the health and safety of communities.

Join us during National Volunteer Week from April 19-25, 2020 in celebrating the essential contributions of volunteers in the City of Toronto. 


National Volunteer Week Calendar 


10AM Join Volunteer Toronto to launch National Volunteer Week celebrations on social media. Share our COVID-19 Volunteer Thank You Video on Twitter


 All Day Volunteer Toronto will be reaching out to key government stakeholders to share data and stories that demonstrate the essential role of volunteers in Toronto.

As of Sunday, April 19th just over 99,600 volunteers supporting COVID-19 response efforts in Toronto have been tracked by Volunteer Toronto. These volunteers are delivering essential services, creating supplies, and providing remote care during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 Access more data here.


We’re challenging all Torontonians to #SayThanks to a volunteer on April 21 by participating in a national Cheers to Volunteers Challenge.



Register for two free information sessions hosted by Volunteer Toronto:


We’re closing the week with a Toronto the Good BINGO Challenge. Share your BINGO card on social media to show how you’re stepping up.


Check Back on Monday, April 20th for More Ways to Get Involved! 


Help us connect volunteers to the causes that need them through a charitable donation to Volunteer Toronto.
