Volunteering

A great way to gain experience in Canada is to volunteer.  Many employers look for volunteer experience when hiring, so be sure to include this on your resume.  There are many different types of volunteer positions in BC. During the year, there are many fun festivals and sports events you can participate in. This is a good opportunity to develop confidence, learn new skills and use your existing skills.

If you are interested in volunteering, contact some local organisations that you are interested in getting involved with.

You can volunteer your time to help your fellow members of the community, some community assistance programs depend on volunteers to operate them.

Volunteering is a great way to meet people who live in your new community, you might also have fun!
