OTTAWA, April 11, 2012 /CNW/ - Volunteer Canada builds buzz around its 2012 National Volunteer Week campaign by launching the 2012 edition of the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement. Adding to the excitement is a new multi-year agreement which expands the annual National Volunteer Week campaign to a year-round effort - delivered in partnership with Investors Group, longstanding supporter of NVW and Canada's corporate leader in volunteer recognition. NVW 2012 runs April 15-21 and more information is available at www.nationalvolunteerweek.ca.
"Volunteers are fundamental to the health of our communities nationwide because they support us and everything we do," said Ruth MacKenzie, President and CEO of Volunteer Canada. "Recognizing Canada's 13.3 million volunteers effectively inspires them to stay engaged and involved."
The Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement increases awareness and understanding of the value of volunteers in community organizations. The Code is heralded nationwide for its content around best practices in volunteer engagement. Volunteer Canada recently updated this signature piece to reflect how volunteering has evolved over the past decade, in order to better support organizations in their efforts to effectively engage today's volunteers.
