Training/Events Calendar

March 13, 2020 - Volunteer Manitoba's Response to COVID-19

After much consideration, and as a precautionary measure, Volunteer Manitoba has decided to postpone all of our training, community outreach and our annual awards dinner in response to the evolving public health situation with COVID-19. Please click here for more information.


Throughout the year, we work hard to identify, develop and deliver effective, engaging and relevant training to boards, staff and volunteers. Our in-house workshops are a great way to build those essential skills needed to further your career in the non-profit and voluntary sectors.

Course Fees

All of our workshop fees are listed within the course details (see below). We want to provide training that is accessible to everyone, so if cost is a barrier to you attending any of our workshops please contact us at training@volunteermanitoba.ca or call us at 204.477.5180
