Organizational Structure

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada is a Federation comprised of 110 member agencies servicing more than 1300 communities across the country. Together we mobilize over 34,000 volunteers who in turn mentor 40,000+ children and young people.

Each Big Brother Big Sister agency provides direct service to children by matching volunteers and youths in quality mentoring relationships. Our agency staff members are experts at screening volunteers and matching them with a mentee having similar interests.

The national organization provides services and programs to our member agencies to assist them with their hands-on work with parents, mentees, and volunteers. Ranging from staff training workshops to our leading Child Safety Program, which includes an emphasis on sexual abuse prevention, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada works diligently to ensure that program quality is superior in all parts of the country.
