Celebrating our superheroes

Did you know that over 20,000 Canadians dedicate their time to helping others as Red Cross volunteers? As we mark National Volunteer Week, it’s time to say thank you to these everyday heroes! 

Red Cross volunteers contribute at a national and local level, all with the same goal in mind – to provide care for others when it’s needed most. Our network of essential volunteers contribute to every program and service that the Canadian Red Cross offers. They leave a lasting impression on individuals they’ve impacted whether it’s a family that needs a place to stay after their home has been devastated by a house fire, or an elderly individual with limited mobility who needs transportation to a medical appointment.  

"The passion and commitment that our volunteers carry out in their work is truly remarkable. It's an honour to have such devoted individuals representing the work of the Red Cross from coast to coast across Canada." - Conrad SauvĂ©, President and CEO of the Canadian Red Cross 

Meet some of these dedicated volunteers who share their experiences working with the Red Cross.
