Eligibility Requirements

Due to funder requirements, Canadian International Volunteers must be either Canadian citizens or permanent residents in order to be eligible to volunteer. Canadian citizens or permanent residents who are residing outside of Canada and/or who do not have a Canadian permanent address are eligible to apply.
Due to VWB's volunteer insurance eligibility requirements, we are unable to recruit volunteers over the age of 79 years of age for international assignments.
Please note that final selection as an international volunteer is subject to completion of a criminal record verification and approval by VWB's insurance provider. International volunteers will also require a valid passport with an expiry date that must exceed the assignment end date by at least six months.
