our volunteers are hardworking individuals dedicated to taking action

Our volunteers are the inspiration that has created Results’ impact for more than 35 years! All across Canada, these empowered individuals - students, professionals, retirees - volunteer their time to learn about the causes and consequences of extreme poverty and the solutions to address it.

what our volunteers do

Regardless of whether our Results volunteers are new or seasoned, they take impactful actions by writing to the media, voicing their opinion on social media, and meeting with federal government decision makers to guide them towards decisions that give people living in poverty the health, education, and economic opportunity they need to thrive. They meet together in groups and love meeting like-minded individuals who care about global health.

Dena Sharafdin

Results Canada Volunteer, online community (ON)

In May 2020, Dena joined Results as a volunteer and immediately took action! She got her first ever Letter to the Editor (LTE) published in the Hill Times talking about why it’s important that Canada invests its support in making treatments and vaccines for the coronavirus accessible to all.
"Results has given me the courage, support, and power to use my voice to advocate for important global issues that I have always wanted to speak up about, but didn’t know how. With the opportunities that Results provide as well as the support from the amazing people at Results, I feel that I am truly making a positive impact in the world.”
