National Volunteer Week 2021 | ECO Canada Thanks You!

If you’re an environmental business owner or leader, you’ve inevitably given thought to the future of your business. We've garnered expert advice on how to ensure your business succeeds after you retire.

National Volunteer Week is around the corner and this year’s theme is “The Value of One, The Power of Many”, which speaks to the overall impact that is made when we all work together towards a common purpose. As we all know the last year has been unprecedented and our ECO Canada family has rallied more than ever before. So, we figured that there’s no better time than now to say thank you. We recognize and appreciate the hard work and dedication of our amazing volunteers who continuously give their time and energy to helping us further the EP Designation across Canada.

Year after year we get an influx of brilliant Environmental Professionals who are passionate about making an impact in Canada’s Environmental Workforce. From our amazing CECAB Board members to the EP National Taskforce members, EP Mentors and ECO Impact judges, you make our jobs more purposeful, and we appreciate you.

We are always looking for a chance to shed some light on the work you do. Send us an email or using the hashtag #EPvolunteers share a social media post showcasing any interesting volunteer opportunities you’ve had and what those experiences meant to you.
