During National Volunteer Week 2022, we celebrate the contributions of Canada’s millions of volunteers: their actions, their understanding, and their genuine concern for the world around them.

Volunteering, putting empathy into action, can build communities where people feel happier, healthier, and more welcome – creating a stronger, more connected Canada.

We invite you to view all the exciting ways

New Brunswick needs empathy in action now more than ever

Megan Conway and Annette Vautour

The last two years have generated a wave of empathy in action – a surge of public interest in volunteerism and grassroots activities. Canadians continuously stepped up to support each other in a variety of creative ways. From celebrating frontline workers, helping neighbours, and not hesitating to act in emergencies, we expressed our empathy through volunteering. During National Volunteer Week (April 24-30), we celebrate and encourage the contributions of New Brunswick’s hundreds of thousands of volunteer hours – their actions, understanding, and genuine concern for the world around them.

Now, as the country imagines its social recovery from the pandemic, the profound human connection created through empathy is at the heart of healing, creating more resilient individuals and stronger communities. Empathy improves our lives, the lives of our children, and the lives of those we support. Canada needs empathy in action, now more than ever.

Empathy is the vital emotion that helps people relate to others. While we can never walk directly in someone else’s shoes, we can try to understand, relate, and walk alongside each other. By volunteering, we help develop empathy by building our awareness around different experiences. It connects people from diverse backgrounds and life experiences in formal and informal settings, creating opportunities to address challenges together. It helps us understand the world around us, and often ourselves, with greater depth. Building this capacity to work collectively and contribute to a vibrant, inclusive society is how we will build back better.

Prior to the pandemic, four in five Canadians engaged in some form of volunteerism – as mentors, coaches, organizers, supporters, community builders, fundraisers, board members, caregivers, and good neighbours. During the pandemic, recruiting formal volunteers amongst so much uncertainty has been a challenge. As well, the increase in requests for virtual volunteer opportunities without the corresponding capacity for non-profits to provide them has placed significant operational strain on the voluntary sector. While essential services volunteering is still the top choice for people wanting to help in their community, trends like the rising cost of fuel are further impacting volunteers’ ability to contribute in-person.

At the same time, we are all facing volunteer fatigue – resilient and tireless, we are also a bit worn out. While we continue to draw strength and connection through our empathy in action, caring for the mental health of staff and volunteers is essential. We must guard against physical and emotional exhaustion to avoid a decrease in the ability to empathize. Non-profits need to prepare – virtual volunteering is here to stay and returning to in-person volunteering with confidence must include the safety concerns of both volunteers and clients.

This is why rebuilding volunteer infrastructure is essential to COVID-19 recovery. New Brunswick’s non-profit sector contributes 10.8 per cent to the province’s GDP, constituting $3.7 billion in economic impact and New Brunswick volunteers contribute a total of 31 million volunteer hours annually. The development of a National Voluntary Action Strategy will strengthen and innovate volunteering infrastructure across Canada and will help to future-proof it in more inclusive and robust ways. This includes collaboration with all levels of governments.

We also need to make volunteering accessible to everyone and address barriers limiting justice, equity, and inclusion for volunteers from diverse backgrounds. Honest reflection on empathy means addressing the real and hidden barriers to volunteering that limit full participation and risks exclusion in our social institutions and communities. We are committed to working with all equity-seeking groups to broaden opportunities and perspectives on ways of engaging in volunteerism.

And to every volunteer, community organization, volunteer centre and workplace that engages and supports volunteers, we offer a heartfelt thank you this National Volunteer Week. As our social recovery takes shape, we encourage you to continue putting your empathy into action.

Volunteer Centres: An Untapped Resource

We’re writing this letter, signed by aligned Volunteer Centres in a robust network across the country, to speak up on how meaningful volunteerism is enabled. 

An Open Letter from Volunteer Centres Across Canada

Canadians volunteer more than anywhere else in the world. Every year, nearly 13 million individuals contribute time to an organization in their community, and during the COVID-19 pandemic hundreds of thousands more have stepped up to deliver services to those most vulnerable. While it’s clear that volunteerism is a powerful characteristic of Canadian identity, the role of Volunteer Centres—the vibrant network of 200+ agencies whose role it is to facilitate this extraordinary exchange—is far from understood, or worse yet, has been ignored. In recent weeks, we have been reminded that, in many instances, governments, funders, and even some non-profit leaders, fail to recognize the skill, resources, and infrastructure required to keep volunteers engaged and our social services afloat.

 

Notwithstanding a crisis, every single Canadian benefits fr om volunteer contributions because of their presence in our social fabric. Even more importantly, volunteers ensure our country’s most vulnerable community members are not left behind. This has been true for decades. The time and skill volunteers dedicate increase our country’s capacity in hospitals, shelters, food banks, schools, festivals, community sport, among others, that if paid, would exceed more than 50 billion dollars every year. 

 

But volunteerism is more than human capacity, and what makes volunteerism truly meaningful is that the exchange is not one-way. When a volunteer gives their time, they in turn gain empathy, understanding, and access to skills or human assets. It is this two-way relationship, enabled by skilled volunteer engagers, that makes volunteerism a meaningful, and ethical exchange of labour. Without an understanding of this important social contract, we stand to drift from volunteerism as a truly democratic function of our society.

 

Local, community-based Volunteer Centres across the country have built connections between non-profits and volunteer seekers from every demographic. We continue to hold an essential recruitment role that enables volunteers to find the opportunities they are looking for and organizations find the volunteers they need.

 

We also do so much more.

 

More than ever, Canada’s 170,000 non-profit and charitable organizations have turned to Volunteer Centres for answers during the COVID-19 crisis. As organizations with decades of experience, we know that it takes expertise to respond quickly and effectively to recruit, train, and manage volunteers to serve clients safely. And what’s more, we know how to leverage the skills and interest of volunteers to build meaningful roles that grow personal experience, and therefore, economic and social opportunity.

 

While some governments spent time, energy and money in building new structures and mechanisms to recruit and deploy volunteers at national and provincial levels, local community based Volunteer Centres have been on the front-lines in realigning their existing resources; providing training and supports for volunteer engagement; coordinating recovery efforts; and pulling together diverse partners to meet identified needs – most often without additional financial or human resources.

 

We have ensured that volunteering has continued to serve a vital role in our community, despite the fact that two out of thr ee charities and non-profit organizations have lost more than 30% of the revenue that allow them to deliver regular, necessary services.

 

As we move to a post-pandemic world, the role of locally-based Volunteer Centres is more important than ever. In an anticipated time of high government debt, limited resources, and greater community needs, the expertise of Volunteer Centres must be harnessed to ensure that we uphold the integrity of volunteerism that underpins our vibrant, and diverse society.

 

We’re up to the challenge.

VOLUNTEER WEEK Greater Moncton Non-Profit Organizations

Nationally this is the week that we thank and pay tribute to all of Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers!   Our local community non-profits will be looking at ways to honour those individuals that volunteer with so many of our programs and services.  We may not be able to have face to to face ‘Recognition/Celebration’ events due to the Pandemic; however, still want to ‘pay tribute’ to our volunteers.  Volunteer Canada has worked with several non-profit’s across the Country and has created a blog describing the many ways you can ‘virtually thank’ community volunteers. Volunteer Canada website – www.volunteer.ca

 

June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day. This is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. The Canadian Constitution recognizes these three groups as Aboriginal peoples, also known as Indigenous peoples.

Although these groups share many similarities, they each have their own distinct heritage, language, cultural practices and spiritual beliefs.

In cooperation with Indigenous organizations, the Government of Canada chose June 21, the summer solstice, for National Aboriginal Day, now known as National Indigenous Peoples Day. For generations, many Indigenous peoples and communities have celebrated their culture and heritage on or near this day due to the significance of the summer solstice as the longest day of the year.

Seeking Volunteers

While it was able to fill its executive positions, River of Pride, a non-profit representing LGBTQ2+ individuals in Moncton, is struggling to recruit five more board members.

“Although we had four people apply for board positions, only one showed up for the meeting,” River of Pride president Rebecca Rogers said, referring to an annual general meeting held in February.

She said the 2021 Pride parade took in a stationary format, which didn’t go over well with the public or volunteers.

“We definitely overextended ourselves both financially and physically and mentally in terms of getting Pride week going and we did have to end up cancelling a number of events as a result of that,” she said, explaining that they had tried to extend the usual Pride week to two weeks last year.

“This year for us is a rebuilding year and we will do the best we can to have a decent Pride this year with the resources we have.”

River of Pride isn’t alone in needing to rebuild now that the province is dropping all pandemic-related restrictions on March 14, according to Debbi Leblanc, volunteer co-ordinator at the Volunteer Centre of Southeastern New Brunswick.

The centre, which is partially funded by the Department of Social Development, helps volunteer organizations recruit and structure their organizations, as well as helps volunteers find out where they can help.

Leblanc said she’s hearing from more and more organizations needing help reinstating their volunteer programs.

“I still think maybe that some volunteers are still a little hesitant to not volunteer right now still because of what’s been happening the last two years with the pandemic. I think we sometimes take a step forward and two steps back,” she said in an interview on Thursday.

She says the pandemic restrictions have also made it harder for those who would like to volunteer to find an occasion to do so.

“I have one volunteer contacting me, he wants to go into senior homes and play some music. Well, that’s fantastic but unfortunately, senior homes during the pandemic have not been open to the referral of volunteers.”

She said she’s expecting to be flooded with calls once the restrictions are officially dropped, as some organizations are still hesitant to reinstate programs due to the frequent stops and starts of the pandemic restrictions.

“People are just starting I believe, to put their volunteer programs in place now whereas after March 14th they’ll do the official request because it can change from one day to the next,” she said.

As for River of Pride, Rogers said putting on a Pride parade was the organization’s top priority this year.

My name is Kayla Cruickshank, YCAN Coordinator for YMCA Moncton

30 War Veterans Ave, Moncton NB, E1C 0B3

I am writing to let you know about a new initiative for youth ages 15-30 to gain personal and professional skills engaging in the development and implementation of community service projects.

The YMCA of Greater Toronto with the support of Employment and Social Development Canada are excited to announce the launch of the YMCA Community Action Network. We will support groups of youth to identify a community need, plan, and execute a service project over the course of 120 hours. I will be providing training and support on creating and maintaining effective group dynamics, identifying community needs, selecting project ideas, developing a project plan, community and stakeholder engagement, executing a plan, problem solving, project evaluation and wrap up.

We are looking to create these projects with marginalized and underrepresented youth, meeting them where they are at, to increase their skills, confidence and community engagement.

There are no prerequisites, however a registration form will need to be completed before volunteering can begin.

I am looking for 10-15 volunteers.

Thanks,

Why volunteer with us?
Why volunteer with us?
“Volunteering for Hospice SENB has shown me just how important compassion can be in changing lives and how easy it is to do! A gentle hug, holding a hand warmly, a smile or listening attentively…..little actions that show people you care. Even as one person, it is possible to make a difference in another’s life. And the rewards far exceed the effort and sometimes the heartbreak. I have found great comfort and peace through helping others to experience their own.”

Urban/Rural Rides is a community transportation service driven by volunteer drivers. In photo above are some of our amazing volunteers. We had the pleasure of spoiling them at an ‘Appreciation Event’ in December.

Breakfast was prepared by volunteers at the Riverview Lions Club who also hosted the event. The food was delicious and they were gracious hosts who made the event a joy.

The drivers were all given a new hoodie with the Urban/Rural Rides logo on it and a certificate of appreciation. Some were even lucky enough to go home with door prizes that included beautiful stained glass ornaments donated by Don and Diane Wilson and chocolates.

The event ended with an open mic where drivers got to share stories and experiences. One driver shared the joy it was to have been able to drive a hospice patient to her last wish visit with her family at the beach.

Another driver shared how touched they were when driving a senior who had not been to get an ice cream in many, many years. They took a detour to grab an ice cream cone and that small moment of joy is one that will never be forgotten.

ESIC and the CINs invite you to watch a newly-released video promoting Community Transportation services in NB.
