Volunteer Support for Displaced Ukrainians

We invite you to contact local Volunteers to Help Ukraine Refugees in Canada in your community to offer your volunteer support. Many immigrant-serving agencies across Canada are federally funded to provide the Canada Connect Program. The Canada Connect program recruits, trains, facilitates and monitors the connection between volunteers as settlement mentors with newcomers including displaced Ukrainians. Please note that volunteers must have a criminal record checked before being connected with a newcomer.
