Description and results


This Volunteer Cooperation Program sends 747 volunteer counsellors in 11 countries. The program aims: 1) to improve the economic and social wellbeing of the members of poor and marginalised communities, particularly women and youth, by providing training and technical assistance in sustainable economic growth and food security, environment protection, gender equality and good governance; and 2) to support Canadian knowledge and technology transfers through the Development Innovation Fund. Additionally, the program’s Canadian public engagement component includes outreach activities, such as la Marche Monde and media campaigns, with the support of volunteers abroad in collaboration with more than 200 Quebec educational institutions.

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcomes of this project include: (1) increased capacity of developing country partners to deliver sustainable development results, in response to local needs, by making use of the skills and expertise of qualified Canadian volunteers; and (2) enhanced Canadian participation in Canada’s sustainable development efforts.
