Welcome to Volunteer Cowichan
Volunteering is a fundamental act of citizenship and philantropy in our society. It is offering time, energy, and skill of one's own free will. Volunteers impact virtually every aspect of society including health, education, social services, youth, sports and recreation, culture, the arts and the environment.
Volunteer Cowichan raises awareness of the power of service, encourages people to volunteer, provides information about volunteerism and recognizes the contribution of volunteers.
We at Volunteer Cowichan support the Cowichan Valley Region Living Wage Policy. A living wage policy is an investment for Volunteer Cowichan, and for the community. It not only fosters the general health and well-being of individuals and families, but also contributes to the economic prosperity of the region. We are committed to the facilitation of a community that is sustainable and maintainable for future generations. Living Wage Policy and Living Wage Rate Calculation.

Volunteers make a world of difference to our communities. Nearly one in three Canadians volunteer in some way or other.
We celebrate Canada’s 13.3 million volunteers!
