Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement & Code Audit Tool

Volunteer Canada created the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement (CCVI) in 2001 to support organizations that engage volunteers. The CCVI details standards of practice for engaging and managing volunteers effectively, and organizations are encouraged to adopt the standards at all levels. To assist in the adoption process, Volunteer Canada developed the Code Audit Tool, which allows organizations to assess and analyze the way they involve volunteers, and helps them identify areas for further development. The CCVI and Code Audit Tool have been updated periodically to reflect the ever changing landscape of volunteerism, and Volunteer Canada has now released a 2017 update of both.
