The Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement (CCVI) was created by Volunteer Canada to support organizations that engage volunteers.
The CCVI is a guide for involving volunteers in all levels of an organization and it aims to improve volunteer involvement across the country. An updated version of the CCVI was released in November 2017 and through a project partnership with the Ontario Volunteer Centre Network, training is being offered across the province on the new standards.
The CCVI clearly states the values and benefits of volunteer involvement. It provides a framework for discussion and decision-making within organizations. It also promotes meaningful volunteer involvement that meets the needs of both the organization and its volunteers.
