National Volunteer Week 2024





The theme for National Volunteer Week 2024 is Every Moment Matters. It highlights the importance of every volunteer and each contribution they make at a moment when we need support more than ever. The sharing of time, skills, empathy, and creativity is vital to the inclusivity, strength, and well-being of our communities.


Volunteers are fundamental to meeting this challenging moment. By coming together, committing support, and increasing our collective efforts and impact, we contribute exponentially to the quality of life we all strive for.


It’s in these moments, and the relationships between them, that we find greater purpose and a sense of belonging. By connecting and engaging with the community, we come to know our importance. Volunteering matters. And by sharing these moments, we co-create the neighbourhoods, culture, and society we want to live in.


Right now, whatever we can contribute is needed and valued. From assisting programs that feed and house Canadians or helping with recovery efforts after a climate emergency to peer mentoring a refugee family or holding space for community grief – moment by moment we can move collectively from surviving to thriving again.

During National Volunteer Week 2024, we come together to recognize and celebrate the importance of every volunteer’s impact from coast to coast to coast. Now more than ever, Every Moment Matters.
