    Hi –

    Could you please let me know if there is a program similar to GetInvolved.ca? I know it has shut down but I have a not for profit organization who requires the assistance of a volunteer who can assist in program and site planning. We accessed the program in 2012 and were very pleased. Thank you for looking into this.

    Hello Marlene, there are lots of resources listed throughout this blog. But if you already have a specifically skilled volunteer in mind, it might be easiest to head to your local volunteer centre. You can find a directory here: http://volunteer.ca/volunteer-centres#find-a-volunteer-centre.

    Thanks again for your support of Getinvolved.ca! We were sad to see it go, but there are still lots of other great resources (as listed above) in the sector. Best of luck!
