Thank you Canadian volunteers, for 150 glorious years.
In 2017, volunteering comes in many forms and is as diverse as Canada itself. Someone who shovels their neighbour’s laneway or who brings a lost pet to the animal shelter is helping to build a stronger community. Sometimes we miss recognizing these people as volunteers, because they do not occupy a formal role within an organization or group.
To celebrate all volunteers and to get you thinking more deeply about volunteering, during NVW Volunteer Canada will release a series of crossword puzzles that reveal the impacts, benefits and diverse ways Canadians are involved in communities. Some answers may be obvious, while others may cause you to stop and say: “Volunteering, Eh?”
However you recognize volunteering in 2017, one thing remains timeless…and that is volunteer efforts create positive impact in communities across Canada.

Volunteering creates a lasting legacy that transforms the lives of the people who volunteer and the people that benefit. To celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Canada, we invite all Canadians to give 150 hours of your time during 2017 and give back to your community and your country by making a difference in people’s lives. Register for the Challenge by signing in to our 150 for 150 on-line platform and mobile app provided by Volinspire and share your volunteer stories, track your volunteer hours, create your volunteer profile and hear about what others across the country are doing to meet the Challenge.The Town of Hinton Volunteer Centre wants to encourage any and all residents of Hinton and Area to get involved with the 150 for 150 initiative!
