Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement
Volunteer Canada created the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement (CCVI) to support organizations that engage volunteers. The CCVI is a framework for involving volunteers in all levels of an organization. This includes volunteers working in leadership, direct service and virtual roles.
We encourage all organizations to think about how they engage volunteers. Download the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement to evaluate your volunteer program.
Background and Purpose
Volunteer Canada launched the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement (CCVI) in 2001. In 2012, we revised it to better reflect today’s volunteer landscape. The CCVI is designed to be adaptable. It’s meant to meet the needs of organizations of all sizes, in every community across Canada. An organization with a single staff member should be able to apply the CCVI. It should also be relevant to national organizations with staff spread out across the country.
