Volunteering Opportunities

We offer citizens the opportunity to become involved in shaping the culture and quality of life in our city by volunteering. There are a wide variety of options for Little Canadians to make a positive impact upon their neighbors and City. Citizens have done improvements to local parks (for example as an Eagle Scout Project). You can enhance your resume and your network in addition to the rewarding feeling of contributing towards the community. Some local organizations that consistently utilize volunteers in the community are the:

  • Canadian Days Committee
  • Little Canada Fire Department
  • Little Canada Historical Society
  • Little Canada Recreation Association
