Start Date: Ongoing

Whether you love living in large cities or prefer a more rural setting, you’re bound to find something that suits you in the beautiful country of Canada. From teaching placements at prestigious boarding schools to outdoor instructor roles in the Rockies, volunteers develop skills and friendships that will last forever.


School’s Assistant placements are generally located in boarding schools in smaller towns and cities, and involve helping permanent staff in a range of activities. Volunteers may also be called upon to help pupils experiencing difficulties with subjects such as English and Maths. School’s Assistants placements in Canada are a great opportunity to experience the fast paced life at a boarding school and volunteers will be involved in a wide range of activities, making the most of their abilities and developing numerous other important skills and attributes.


Volunteers are usually placed within permanent activity camps in some of Canada’s most spectacular areas of natural beauty. Volunteers instruct and assist campers in activities such as canoeing, horse-riding, climbing, archery, arts and crafts, and hiking. For those that show enthusiasm and ability there may be the chance to attain outdoor qualifications and attend training. If you love the great outdoors and are full of energy, these placements are for you. 

There are also a small number of Caring Camps, where volunteers work at camps that cater for young children and adults with special needs. These placements offer volunteers the chance to help individuals in a real and meaningful way whilst gaining valuable experience of working in a professional care and outdoor education environment - all in the spectacular setting of Canada’s great outdoors.
