Volunteering: A Traditional Canadian Value (1998)

The spirit of volunteerism in Canada is rooted in the traditions and values of the pioneers who built this country, and it is inspired by the concept of mutual help and co-operation that lies at the heart of Native societies.

This short history of volunteerism in Canada is intended to help increase public understanding of the size and diversity of voluntary action as a historic force in Canadian society. In recognizing the contributions of volunteers from a historical point of view, the authors hope that modern-day volunteering will become more visible and will achieve its full potential in years to come.
