National Volunteer Week


The National Volunteer Week theme for 2023, Volunteering Weaves Us Together (Volunteer Canada), is a celebration of our individual and collective actions in creating a strong, interconnected, and vibrant community.  The diverse forms of sharing our time, talent, and energy strengthen the fabric of Halton Region.   

Through volunteering, we experience our interconnectedness, making our lives more meaningful.  Getting involved in various ways, we find friendship, develop trust, and link our relationships. Threading these connections, we come to belong as we contribute towards the same goals. 

Volunteers make things happen in our community.  Over the past 12 months, Halton has seen the return of many much-loved activities and events, including the Sound of Music Festival, RibFest, and the Milton Multi-Cultural Festival as well as the re-opening of cultural institutions and the return of organized sports with their fans.  Organizations forced to engage essential staff and volunteers only during the height of the pandemic are now opening their doors to welcome back volunteers in larger numbers. Here at Volunteer Halton, we see people supporting family, friends, neighbours, and strangers, people standing up to systemic racism, and people taking actions to improve our community’s overall wellness, now and for future generations.  Every volunteer action matters. Like each individual thread makes weaving stronger, every volunteer’s experience, perspective, and abilities add to our collective resilience.  Woven together from Halton Halls to Oakville, from Burlington to Milton, volunteering reinforces our ability to grow, thrive, and create change within our region, province, and country. 

In Canada, 24 million Canadians give their time through formal or informal types of volunteering, contributing close to 5 billion hours per year.  This National Volunteer Week, Community Development Halton/Volunteer Halton will recognize some of the amazing volunteers in our community as we present our Cheers to Volunteers and Halton Volunteer Impact Awards at our Community Celebrations. 

Community Development Halton and Volunteer Halton celebrates the collective impact of Halton’s volunteers for volunteering weaves us together, strengthening the fabric of our community by sharing our time, talent, and energy to support one another.
