We offer an incredible range of unpaid, full-time volunteer programmes working with a number of charitable or non-profit organisations, some of which may be faith based, in Canada.

You will be able to put a preference for your location and your preferred placement type from the section below when you complete your application. The placements also include accommodation!
Each individual programme is different, and your daily itinerary will depend on your role and the company you will be working for. Your host organisation will inform you of your specific working hours and duties in advance of your travel to Canada.
With these rural-based volunteering projects you can head right off the beaten track in Canada. You will live and work on site in rural areas, working with a team and supporting local staff in their efforts to protect and conserve the Canadian wilderness.
When you apply, you will be given the choice of either a Environmental Conservation or Wildlife Protection placement. The team will then try to find you a placement that best matches your preferences, based on your experience and availability.
Volunteers can expect to work long hours and will need to have a good level of physical fitness to participate.
