The Gift of Giving Back


Volunteer Victoria is the only volunteer centre that serves people of all ages, organizations of all sizes and groups of all kinds. The organization helps in all the municipalities across Greater Victoria. Our mission is to inspire volunteers and empower volunteerism—which basically means when volunteers are needed, we are here to help.

Thanks to a grant from the Government of Canada New Horizons for Seniors Program, we have been talking to people about their volunteering journeys, and learning more about how volunteerism adds value to their lives and to the community.

In 2024, our 50th year of service, Volunteer Victoria is celebrating volunteers and volunteerism. We are pleased to share the following volunteering stories from our collection.

You can listen to more stories about volunteering and community building on the Volunteering Matters Podcast or you can read our Volunteer Matters Magazine on our website at
