Mission Statement


The Uniterra programme provides numerous opportunities for Canadian citizens to volunteer abroad in their field of experience. We work with local partners in 13 countries in Africa, Latin America and Asia. Uniterra's objective is to support development initiatives to address world poverty. Cooperate with Uniterra and work in partnership with various organizations, both in developing countries and in Canada. Volunteers share their experiences with their community, encourage international solidarity, and help shape policies towards meeting the UN Millennium Development Goals. With Uniterra, you can volunteer for a position of one month to two years, depending on the needs of local cooperation initiatives. Recruitment for positions is all-year round. Canadian volunteers for Uniterra must be Canadian citizens or have landed immigrant status. Uniterra also offers the possibility for local resources from different program countries to participate in the initiatives and cooperation projects of partner organizations. These volunteers ensure long term follow-up and the maintenance of knowledge and skills acquired via the Uniterra Programme.
