Canada - not the typical "Volunteering Country"?
Canada is certainly not among the first 5 places that would come to mind when thinking of where volunteers are needed. The reason for this is obvious: it is not a developing country, as other "Volunteering countries" are usually defined. Canada is a modern welfare state with a low percentage of people living below the poverty line. But without the sense of national volunteerism Canada would not be what it is now. Many institutions would not work or simply would not exist. Some of the first hospitals were founded by volunteers. Orphanages and other health centers arose only because Canadians selflessly help each other and give their time and energy to others.
