Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau issued the following statement on National Volunteer Week: "During National Volunteer Week, we recognize Canadians who improve the lives of others, and build a better country, one selfless act at a time."
This year's theme 'Celebrate the Value of Volunteering - building confidence, competence, connections, and community' reminds us that when we give our time and talent, we gain even more. We meet new people, learn valuable skills and broaden our horizons. We draw our communities closer together, and show that even the smallest act of kindness can make our country and our world a better place. When we give back, we raise each other up and bring us all closer together.
