Event Description

 

Held annually during National Volunteer Week (April 7 – 13, 2019), the Time To Give Community Breakfast celebrates volunteerism and the spirit of community.

Volunteering: Good for Individuals. Good for Community. Good for Business.
In 2018, Volunteer Canada released ‘The Value of Volunteering’ to illustrate the immense and far reaching benefits of volunteer involvement in Canada.

Volunteers contributed two billion hours to Canada’s work effort in 2017. This volunteer contribution is valued at $55.9 billion; equivalent to 2.6 per cent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) – Conference Board of Canada
Volunteering is a vital resource and, if volunteering were an industry, it would employ nearly as many people as those currently working in education.

It’s good for individuals. Volunteering supports skill development, sense of belonging and well-being.
It’s good for community. Volunteering builds and strengthens resiliency, cohesion and social inclusion.

It’s good for business. Attracting talent, Stakeholder Relations and Employee Engagement.
