Yes absolutely! Although most of our volunteer opportunities are based in Vancouver or Toronto, some of them are remote and can be completed from anywhere.

We are also in the process of initiating MAPS Canada support groups across Canada and are always looking to connect volunteers with each other. 

If you are based out of Toronto, you are in luck! We have recently launched our first official MAPS Canada Support Group there.
