Volunteer at CFA Society Toronto

Make Connections, Build Leadership Skills and Support Your Community.

CFA Society Toronto is a not-for-profit organization that relies heavily on support from Committee and Project Volunteers. Our volunteers help bring together the content, speakers and coordination for our professional development events, contribute to publications and participate in our outreach programs.

In return, our volunteers are given the opportunity to strengthen their professional skills, apply their talent, and build business connections within and outside of the CFA community. Currently, we offer two types of volunteer positions, Committee Volunteers and Project Volunteers.

Volunteer Appreciation

Our organization thrives on the passion and dedication of our volunteers—they are the bedrock of our success.

As a token of our appreciation, we're honoring these remarkable individuals during Volunteer Appreciation Week, from April 15th to 19th. Throughout the week, we'll be shining a spotlight on our incredible volunteers in the Volunteer Appreciation page and on our LinkedIn (@CFAToronto) and Instagram(@CFASocietyToronto) accounts.

Their stories, their impact, and their unwavering commitment deserve to be celebrated. Whether they're supporting events, mentoring others, or driving our mission forward, each volunteer plays an integral role in our shared journey.
