Why volunteer?

According to Volunteer Canada, volunteering:

  • Fosters interaction among citizens and strengthens ties between people
  • Is good for your health – physically, intellectually, and morally
  • Reduces stress as effectively as yoga or meditation
  • Helps you improve your interpersonal and communication skills
  • Enhances your understanding of the issues in your chosen sector of activity

Also, volunteers enjoy greater longevity.


“After observing over 6,000 retirees for 4 years, gerontologists in the United States noticed that the rate of mortality among volunteers was only half that of their counterparts who did not engage in volunteering. How could this gap be explained? Researchers believe that this type of activity allows those who take part in it to remain physically and intellectually active and maintain their social network. Unquestionably, these are factors that contribute to improved general health. Forget Bridge: devote your time to worthy causes instead!”
