You Can Make A Difference

Just 10 years ago, Islamic Relief Canada started with only a handful of volunteers who wanted to make a difference. Now, 10 years later, we’ve helped more than 30 million people around the world.

No matter your age, your background, or your profession, you have something valuable to offer. Your small actions can have big impacts. Your dedication will touch people in some of the most remote and dangerous places in the world.

Help out at one of our events, or even better, organize one of your own. We want your passion, your ideas, and your skills. Join our volunteer team today.

Volunteer Abroad

The INSPIRE Volunteer Abroad Program is an excellent opportunity to get involved in a unique, informative, and hands on experience in a completely different context. You’ll work to address the needs identified by the local Islamic Relief office. Give your time and energy where it’s needed most and become part of an extraordinary volunteer experience. This year we are excited to offer this program in several new and exciting locations! Click here for more details!


IR Challenges are about pushing your limits to support a good cause. When you embark on an adventure with us, you’re also committing to fundraise for those in need around the world. Travel to beautiful corners of the world with a deep purpose. Your efforts can provide clean water to a family in Sudan, provide essential aid to the people of Yemen, or bring hope to Syrian refugees. Walk, trek, bike, or crawl with us this year and help change a life.

Regional Fundraising Teams

Interested in making a difference in the world? Want to get involved in your community? Volunteer with one of our regional teams! Regional Teams are extensions of IRC in their communities. They are in charge of planning and executing community events throughout the year. This includes dozens of fundraising initiatives, building relationships with different organizations and businesses, and even distributing winter supplies to the homeless and shelters.
