Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration

The Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration has provincial responsibility for:

• volunteerism
• newcomer settlement
• provincial honours and awards

The Ontario government is dedicated to building a province where newcomers are welcomed, diversity is celebrated, and volunteerism is valued and recognized to improve quality of life for everyone.

Our Partnership

The Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration’s ChangeTheWorld program is delivered in partnership with the Ontario Volunteer Centre Network. The Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration provides funding to OVCN for administration of the program and to 24 of OVCN’s member Volunteer Centres to deliver meaningful volunteer opportunities to youth ages 14 to 18 through their work on the ground in communities throughout Ontario.
