Volunteer Award for Arts & Culture in Toronto

We are closely monitoring the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation and its impact on our partner organizations and their volunteer programmes. The health, well-being and safety of our volunteer community is our top priority.


The VAACT member organizations are continuing discussions and evaluating the situation as many events are being cancelled or postponed. At this time, we are still planning for our event in December, taking into consideration the safest and most appropriate option available, as well as adjusting the qualification requirements as necessary. We will be sure to provide more information when we have these details confirmed. This is uncharted territory for all of us and we hope you are staying safe and practicing social distancing.


We look forward to reconnecting as a community at upcoming events in the near future and celebrating your volunteer contributions to Toronto's vibrant arts & culture landscape.
