C'est quoi?

What is it?

An Individual Volunteer Project is above all an exchange relationship between a volunteer and a host organization, for which he dedicates his time, work and energy for the benefit of a community. The organization will act as a mentor for the volunteer, offering them support throughout their project, opportunities allowing them to develop their professional skills and the possibility of being creative and innovative.

Pour qui?

For whom?

Our volunteer projects are available for youth between the ages of young adults from 18 to 30 years old or 19-30 years old, depending on the age of majority in the host province.

You must be a citizen, permanent resident or person who has been granted refugee or protected person status in Canada.

Quel prix?

How much does it cost?

It’s free! All projects in Canada are carried out under the Canada Service Corps initiative, so all expenses related to transportation, accommodation, food, insurance CNESST and assistance are covered.

The type of accommodation varies depending on the project. Personal expenses are not included.
