Ontario Volunteer Centre Network (OVCN) is an unincorporated network of Volunteer Centres led by a Steering Committee. OVCN provides a provincial network and voice to strengthen the individual and collective ability of Volunteer Centres in Ontario, to promote and develop volunteerism. OVCN also inspires and strengthens leadership through community service and volunteer engagement, and promotes the 3Rs of volunteerism – Recruit! Retain! Recognize! 

Our goals are:

  • To become self-sustaining and achieve sustainability for Ontario’s Volunteer Centres
  • To assist Volunteer Centres to enhance their capacity to deliver quality programs and services
  • To influence social policy as it relates to Volunteer Centres and volunteerism
  • To increase public awareness of the value and impact of volunteerism
