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 volunteer their time and take action to influence Canadian government decision makers to improve policies, create better programs and increase resources to end extreme poverty.

how our volunteers take action

Whether Results volunteers are new or seasoned, they are passionate and committed individuals who want to make a difference in the lives of people living in poverty. They take action by:

  • Influencing parliamentarians (Members of Parliament (MPs), federal government Ministers, or Senators) by calling, writing, emailing, or meeting;
  • Publishing letters to the editor (LTEs) or op-eds in their local or national newspaper;
  • Using social media by tweeting, posting, sharing and liking - and tagging parliamentarians;
  • Attending webinars, conferences and events;
  • Donating and fundraising;
  • Collaborating with other volunteers (and even winning awards for their efforts!).
