English and Volunteer Work

The first two groups of volunteers working for Parks Canada arrived just a few weeks ago. They took part in the two day training put on by Parks Canada staff and our team coordinators and are now hitting the parks to do good and learn a lot!

StudyCanada offers the Canadian Volunteer Program year round with 4 weeks English classes and several week projects in conservation, wildlife rescue and community service.  The four conservation projects we offer give volunteers the chance to see behind-the-scenes of a Canadian National or Provincial Park and learn from Park staff as they do interesting environmental work, visitor engagement activities and trail building.    

WHY VOLUNTEER:

  1. It’s Great for your CV (universities and many employers now require some prior volunteer experience)
  2. See the REAL world – get out from behind your monitor and into nature – it’s good for you and the scenery of the Canadian parks will take your breath away. 
  3. Meet some really Great People!  The staff in the projects and the other volunteers are super cool people and you will make friends for life when you volunteer abroad.
  4. Develop New Skills – learn more about conservation, sustainability,  and community service.  Develop your leadership skills, learn to work in teams. Learn about Canada and the world.  What you learn will stay with you forever – invest in yourself and volunteer!
