- Volunteering: My Canadian Experience - This PowerPoint presentation, presented to Lambton College's Information Technology Professionals (ITP) Program students, takes you through the volunteering experience from beginning to end. It includes information on the process of becoming a volunteer, challenges to volunteering, your rights and responsibilities as a volunteer, question you might be asked by an organization and questions you should be asking.
- Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement: This document provides a framework for the voluntary sector in Canada. Although it is geared towards the organizations that recruit volunteers, it can help you understand volunteerism in Canada and give you some idea what to expect in your volunteer experiences and from the organization in which you are volunteering.
