About the Program
The Volunteer Program is about making a difference. You will leave with having gone through the rewarding and rare experience of helping out local communities and wildlife alike. The majority of our volunteer locations are in remote parts of the country, which offer a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and thrive in the true outdoors. However, big city life is your preference, there are also possibilities to volunteer with pet rescue centres in places such as Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary. Here, you will get to take care of cats, dogs and other pets that have been rescued or found. This program is by no means a rest and relaxation holiday, it involves tough, yet worthwhile work that can be exhausting at times, however constantly rewarding at every turn.
Depending on the volunteer station that you have chosen you could be rehabilitating wildlife or helping out local first nations communities. Keep in mind that when for example volunteering at wildlife station not all your time will be spent with the animals. There will be lot’s maintenance to do with the animals cages as well as the volunteer organizations property, cleaning, preparing food and many other tasks.
INTERNeX has connections with volunteer stations throughout the country and knows very well what you can expect when you choose to go on a volunteer experience; this ensures you have the best opportunities and are well prepared for the whole experience. We act as a mediator between you and the volunteer station so we help with any questions, concerns or worries you may have and ensure your entire experience goes smoothly.
