Canada 150 for 150 Volunteer Challenge

A big “THANK YOU” to all the volunteers that helped us celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary by giving back to our community and our country and making a difference in the lives of Canadians.

St. Albert Community Information and Volunteer Centre partnered with Volunteer Ottawa, Volunteer Canada and Volunteer Centres across the country for the Canada 150 for 150 Volunteer Challenge. This was a nation-wide campaign to encourage Canadians to give 150 hours of volunteer time in 2017 in celebration of Canada’s 150th Anniversary.

We are proud to announce that St. Albertans rose to this challenge, proving that we truly are one of the best places to live!

Here are the statistics we have collected:

Registered Participants: 185 people

Organizations Represented: 126

Number of those who have completed the challenge: 93

Total volunteer hours: 41,894.87
Which is an estimated value of $837,897.4!

According to the statistics provided to us by Volunteer Ottawa, our numbers have surpassed many other major cities and even some provinces!
